Public Lecture

The Current Situation: Embattled America, Quiescent Canada, Semi-Secular Britain

Wednesday, Sep 26, 2018 at 7:30PM - 9:00 PM
Mark-noll-politics-480

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.

Lecture 1

This lecture will set out the current differences and similarities in the three regions, tracing their historical trajectories and catalyzing theological reflection in response to current situations.

Lectures 2 and 3 of this series will be delivered the following day:

Lecture 2: September 27, 11:30am—1 pm "Triumphs of Anglo, American, and Canadian Christian Politics"

Lecture 3: September 27, 7:30—9 pm "Tragedies of Anglo, American, and Canadian Christian Politics"
