Online Conversation | Christianity & the Case for Democracy
with Luke Bretherton, Deondra Rose, and Anne Snyder

We were pleased to partner with Duke Divinity School for an Online Conversation with Luke Bretherton, Deondra Rose, and Anne Snyder discussing Bretherton’s recent work, Christ and the Common Life: Political Theology and the Case for Democracy. Bretherton describes political theology as “…an interpretive art for discovering faithful, hopeful, and loving judgements about how to act together in response to shared problems.” He argues that democracy itself is inherently relational—a form of love in action, built on a “set of relational practices [that] fosters forms of disciplined and active listening, and a way we can discover with and for others just and generous forms of common life.”
