The Trinity Forum recently hosted an Evening Conversation with Andy Crouch — editor of Christianity Today and author of “Playing God: Redeeming the Gift of Power.” In the talk, Crouch talked about how, from the beginning, God has a plan to move things from good, to very good, to glory — and that human and government institutions, when following that plan, can create human flourishing. But when they abuse that plan the result is an idolatry that can cause suffering.
Responding to Crouch is Washington Post columnist Mike Gerson — who served as chief speechwriter to President George W. Bush, and was an eyewitness to the practical exercise of power in the White House.
