Taped on September 6, 1980. A radiant session with the former left-wing atheist, who became one of the century's leading Christian apologists. Mr. Muggeridge on how he was drawn to faith: "Now why did this longing for faith assail me? Insofar as I can point to anything, it is to do with this profession which both you and I followed of observing what's going on in the world and attempting to report and comment thereon, because that particular occupation gives one a very heightened sense of the sheer fantasy of human affairs-the sheer fantasy of power and of the structures that men construct out of power-and therefore gives one an intense, overwhelming longing to be in contact with reality. And so you look for reality, and you try this and try that, and ultimately you arrive at the conclusion-great oversimplification-that reality is a mystery. The heart of reality is a mystery." Buckley: "Even if that were so, why should that mystery lead you to Christian belief?" Muggeridge: "Because it leads you to God." Summary by Firing Line staff. [NOTE: S0432 is the original 60-minute broadcast. S0432R is the edited 30-minute version, with an added introduction by Buckley, which was rebroadcast annually at Christmas for the rest of the life of Firing Line.]moreless
