Nearly every day, we're confronted with news of abuses of power, oppression of marginalized people, miscarriage of justice, and much more. Westar's newest book, Doing Theology in the Age of Trump, seeks to address these issues by using theology in practical ways that can instruct our behavior.
Join us for a virtual roundtable featuring contributors to the book as we discuss:
  • How the religious right's "politics of grievance" stimulated both a desire to constitute a majority, and feelings of persecution
  • Why disaster has actually been good for this administration
  • A correlation between cheap resistance and cheap grace
The event will take place Wednesday, July 31st from 6-7pm ET. The scholars will share some of their own work and reflections, discuss the above topics, and then we'll open it up for direct Q&A. Registration is free, and the replay will be available immediately following the event so you can still participate, even if you can't listen live.
