placeIdols, Identity Politics, and Lies of Our Age
watch_laterStarting 12:00 pm
How should Christians respond to the challenges of our time? This is a question that many are struggling to answer these days. As identity politics has continued to gain strength, it has come to look less like a mode of political engagement and more like a substitute religion, challenging the traditional religious practices that have underpinned the American social and political order.
Rod Dreher, Joshua Mitchell, and Daniel Mahoney have all recently written insightful books that address different aspects of this issue, aimed at helping Christians and other traditionally-minded people navigate this new “woke” world.
On March 20th, 2021 The American Conservative is partnering with our friends at Patrick Henry College and the Intercollegiate Studies Institute to host an important discussion between these three leading lights. They will offer their thoughts on how Christians and conservatives can better understand these trends and respond effectively.
