The Tea Party, the Taliban, and the Temptation of Power: Which Kind of Society is "Biblical"?

Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at 7:30pm - 9:30 pm

This event has now ended. Please view this page to see all our upcoming events.


Around 44% of the US Tea Party’s membership self-identify as “born-again Christians” who want to see Christian values informing both politics and government. A significant proportion of these are Christian Reconstructionists—they believe that the Bible should form the sole basis upon which society should be organized, and specifically, that biblical law should form the sole basis for all American law. But what kind of society is really “biblical”? And what does this mean for a Christian approach to politics?

Join us for this free Evening Public Lecture. Our lectures tend to draw large crowds, so plan to arrive early for a good seat.
