    Recently, two high-profile criminal trials have drawn the focus of the national media: the sentencing trial for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, also known as the “Boston Marathon bomber,” and the trial of James Holmes, who killed twelve people in 2012 in Aurora, Colorado.

    Punching for Jesus: Will God Take Sides in the “Fight of the Century”?

    Boxing and religion have often intersected in dramatic fashion, far beyond the thanks winning fighters routinely give to God.
