53: God in the Public Square

EPISODE: 53

God in the Public Square

with Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit

What is ‘public theology’? Why is it important? And are you doing it without knowing it? Let the WADR team clue you in.

In this episode, Megan Powell du Toit and Michael Jensen delve into the world of public theology – engaging in society’s debates in a way that makes Christ shine.

The WADR team begins with Canadian scholar and journalist John Stackhouse and an in-depth interview on the nature of public theology.

Then it’s time to consider what the challenges are for both the presenter and the message in For Argument’s Sake.

Finishing up, Michael and Megan consider whether comedian and talk show host Stephen Colbert is a public theologian, and what we might learn from his approach.

WHAT IS WITH ALL DUE RESPECT?

Less aggro, more conversation.

Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.
