Here at The Pannenberg Circle we have been reading through Stanley Hauerwas's The Peaceable Kingdom: A Primer on Christian Ethics. An excellent book thus far. Several topics have emerged as points of discussion and even disagreement between us on "The Forum" (here). One such topic is the role of faith and politics. Below we've include a brief clip by James K. A. Smith from Calvin College on his understanding of the relation between faith and politics. This is a pertinent and relevant topic and we'd love to hear your thoughts? Conversation is needed because of the complexities of the issues that arise from such a topic and our pathetic ability to think Christianly through all the ins and outs, pros and cons.
