Theology & Public Discourse
Show Notes

In this episode Jeff and Emily are joined by Dr. Kristen Deede Johnson and Dr. John Inazu to discuss public discourse and what we can learn about how to get along in a pluralistic society in such a divided time. How can we understand our unique point in history and how do we faithfully follow Christ and live that out in the world in our time and place? We talk about questions of political philosophy, formation, and practices for how we interact together. 

Kristen Deede Johnson is the Professor of Theology and Christian Formation at Western Theological Seminary. She is the author of Theology, Political Theory, and Pluralism and Justice Calling

John Inazu is the Sally D. Danforth Distinguished Professor of Law and Religion at Washington University in St. Louis, and the executive director of The Carver Project. Inazu is the author of Liberty’s Refuge and Confident Pluralism.  

Inazu is also the co-editor (with Tim Keller) of Uncommon Ground: Living Faithfully in a World of Difference in which Johnson has an essay.
