The support of American evangelicals for Donald Trump has grabbed headlines across the globe. For Christians, especially those who consider themselves evangelical Protestants, opinions have become enflamed. Some applaud. Others are sympathetic. Some are bewildered. Some appalled.
The level of intensity in the American Christian-political relationship contrasts sharply with both Canada and the United Kingdom. In the States, politics and Christianity are enmeshed. In Canada and Britain, Christians remain active in public life but in a decidedly different context.
This series of three lectures will offer historical and theological insights from the contrasting histories of Canada, Britain, and America.
In this noontime lecture we will discern when and where political involvement in the three regions has highlighted Christian integrity, supported Christian values, and advanced the Kingdom of God. Focusing on efforts for social reform, and support for (or opposition to) revolution we will also delve into the contrasts between Protestant and Catholic strategies of political involvement.
Lecture 3, the third and last lecture of this series, will be delivered in the evening:
Lecture 3: September 27, 7:30—9 pm “Tragedies of Anglo, American, and Canadian Christian Politics”
