Apr 14, 2016
In depth analysis of Christian Protestantism and how that shapes the contemporary world http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/what-would-jesus-do-christian-culture-wars-in-the-modern-west
Christian Culture Wars in the Modern West Europe and North America are now marginal in global Protestant Christianity, but they remain the vital test-bed of how this religion and post-industrial society can, or cannot, adapt to each other. This lecture will explain how, following the moral trauma of the Second World War, Christianity has produced both a bold, sometimes self-defeating liberalism, and also a newly assured but politically compromised conservatism; and explore the deep continuities connecting the two, and how they continue to shape the contemporary world.
The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/what-would-jesus-do-christian-culture-wars-in-the-modern-west Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.
