Craig Gay – “Remembering the Theological Roots of Liberal Democracy”

Liberal democracy is in trouble in many parts of the world today, even in North America. One important reason for this is that many people have forgotten what “liberal democracy” is and where—in terms of its animating convictions—it comes from. My forum talk is intended to help us to remember that what we call “liberal democracy” is actually the political outworking of some very basic Christian ideas.
