Frank talks to writer and former priest James Carroll, whose new book, Constantine's Sword; The Church and the Jews, explores the role of the Catholic church in anti-Semitism. From gospel accounts of the crucifixion of Jesus, to Emperor Constantine's transformation of the cross into a sword, and through the Holocaust, Carroll illustrates the points of conflict — and common ground — between Jews and Catholics. (The book is published by Houghton Mifflin, Co.)
