Educational resources to help you envision and live a flourishing life
Violence in God's Name
"Christians are called to collaborate without compromise and to critique without dualism." (N.T. Wright, from today's episode) What better way to secure the greatness of your political state (or maybe political party) than to invoke the name of God as being uniquely supportive of your team? It brings a sickening and divisive new meaning to Romans 8:31—"If God is for us, who can be against us?” In this episode, revered New Testament scholar N.T. Wright joins Miroslav Volf to discuss Monotheism, Nationalism, & Violence. Together they reflect on the history and current realities of what happens when these three elements converge. The conversation was inspired by N.T. Wright's response to a short digital booklet that Miroslav Volf entitled Monotheism, Nationalism, & Violence: 25 Theses, which is available for download at faith.yale.edu.
Our purpose is to help people envision and pursue lives worthy of our humanity. We see theology as a way of life seeking understanding. Our work takes its shape in research, teaching, and public engagement expressed through two initiatives: Christ & Flourishing & Life Worth Living.
