Dr Stephen Backhouse is an author, teacher and political theologian who specialises in religion, patriotism and christianised nationalism. This podcast arose from the high volume of questions coming in from people dismayed by current events surrounding racism, nationalism, state violence and presidential religious photo-ops. Most distressing of all is the amount of Christians who enthusiastically endorse such things. The questioners all know that the current options available to them are bad, but they despair of imagining an alternative. Christians, our political imagination stinks. We need a new one. We need to be Followers of the Way.
