The Muslim Brotherhood was once the most organized political group in Egypt – but now most of its leaders are in prison or on the run. How did it fall so far?

Morsi’s Failed Experiment in Egypt

In 2012, when Egyptians were wondering how to build a new government, the Muslim Brotherhood seemed to have the answers. Holding up the Koran as a guide, the group offered morality, righteousness and clarity. But after only a year in office, its presidential candidate, Mohamed Morsi, was ousted by the Egyptian military. So where did the Brotherhood go wrong?

The First Woman to Lead America’s Evangelical Lutherans

The Evangelical Lutheran Church, like many churches in America, is in a numbers crisis. It’s pews have shrunk nearly every year since it was founded in 1987, and it lost nearly half a million members in 2010 and 2011. Into this landscape walks Elizabeth Eaton, the first woman elected to lead the church. Her solution to get people to join? “We’ll give out toaster ovens.” (She’s kidding, of course.)
