When we consider politics and government, how can we best guide ourselves and our churches to live out a Christ-centered political witness? In this week’s conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Dr. N.T. Wright. Tom is the former Bishop of Durham, Professor Emeritus at the University of St. Andrews, and a senior research fellow at Oxford. He’s written a number of books, including his latest, titled “Jesus and the Powers.” Together, Tom and Jason explore the kingdom of God as it relates to the kingdoms of this world. Tom then provides some insights into how the church can show up when it comes to politics, embracing a kingdom-oriented political posture as we resist the empire.
