The guys at Nomad kindly asked me whether I would be their 110th podcaster. So I was interviewed on the subject of Jesus and the politics of love. This was no short affair, lasting around an hour, so it’s definitely for those who want to dig into what I have to say in response to some relatively probing questions. But if that’s you, here is their introduction followed by a link to the interview:
With the dust just beginning to settle after Britain’s decision to leave the European Union, we thought we’d take the opportunity to look at our relationship with politics. Was Jesus political? Should Christians engage in party politics, or should they be a prophetic voice from the margins? We bring these, and many other questions to political theologian Roger Mitchell. Roger is an honorary research fellow in the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion at the University of Lancaster and on the faculty of the Westminster Theological Centre. So he knows a thing or two about religion and about politics. So tune in for an insightful and challenging conversation!
