What is Conservatism, Liberalism, and Progressivism? When we talk about left and right, and republicans and democrats, what do we mean? What about the US context versus the global context, versus the East coast, West coast, Midwest, metropolitan, rural, and on and on, context...?
These questions don't have short answers, nor do I believe they have one answer. But they form an endless political and philosophical conversation that I believe we all need to have and keep having. If we do, maybe we can understand each other a bit more.
Now I don't want to take up any more time with this intro than I need to because my guest today has a lot of say, and has both the knowledge and experience to back it all up.
I am happy to be joined by Dr. David Congdon.
Dr. Congdon is an author, speaker, and scholar working in the area of theology and culture. Originally from Portland, Oregon, David completed his undergrad in English at Wheaton College, and his master's and Ph.D. in theology from Princeton Theological Seminary. He has since worked in the publishing industry as an academic editor. He is the author of The Mission of Demythologizing: Rudolf Bultmann’s Dialectical Theology, Rudolf Bultmann: A Companion to His Theology, and most recently, The God Who Saves: A Dogmatic Sketch.
I am releasing our dialogue, which lasted for nearly 3 hours, in two parts. So today I hope you enjoy the first half, and next week you can expect the second half.
Recorded on October 8, 2018, and published on the 12th of October.
