Joining us here in studio, from the new film, THE WAY, Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez.

We are pleased to welcome back to the show, actor/writer/producer/director Emilio Estevez. As an actor, you might remember him from his stand-out roles in classic 80’s films The Breakfast Club, The Outsiders, St. Elmo’s Fire and Young Guns 1 and 2, and as Coach Gordon Bombay from the Mighty Ducks series. Behind the camera, he directed the award-winning film Bobby about the life of Robert F. Kennedy, which won a Hollywood Film Award.

Here with Emilio is his father, and the star of The Way, Martin Sheen. Mr. Sheen is a multiple Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner who has appeared in over 65 feature films, but is perhaps best known for his roles in Apocalypse Now, Wall Street and The Departed and—of course on TV as President Josiah “Jed” Bartlett on The West Wing.

Welcome to the Busted Halo Show, Emilio Estevez and Martin Sheen!

Have you ever thought that the God of the Old Testament seemed kind of…mean? Well, you wouldn’t be alone. Our guest this evening on The Busted Halo Show explores these feelings and concepts in his new book God Behaving Badly: Is the God of the Old Testament Angry, Sexist, and Racist? David Lamb is associate professor of Old Testament at the Biblical Theological Seminary in Hatfield, Pennsylvania. He previously worked in campus ministry with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and has taught extensively in various cross-cultural contexts. In his new book God Behaving Badly, Mr. Lamb sets out to fix God’s bad reputation by engaging with Scripture and history to provide reassuring answers to some of our potentially challenging questions.

First of all, the two questions covered in this section of the show are 1) when exactly does my Lenten promise end? And 2) if I don't know that something is a sin, do I still have to confess it?

People call the show from all over the place, but rarely do we get calls from a venue this peculiar!
