The Political Disciple

It is important for the disciple of Jesus Christ to think and act biblically, and the political arena is no exception. But in such confusing and polarizing times, it is easy to become disoriented and wonder how we are to engage the public square in a Christlike manner. Join us at 4pm on Oct. 9th at the First Presbyterian Church of Evanston as Dr. Vincent Bacote of Wheaton College calls Christians to examine their public witness and offers insight in how to live faithfully in trying times.

 

Dr. Vincent Bacote is an Associate Professor of Theology and the Director of the Center for Applied Christian Ethics at Wheaton College. He is the author of The Political Disciple: A Theology of Public Life (2015) and The Spirit in Public Theology: Appropriating the Legacy of Abraham Kuyper (2005) and is a regular columnist for Comment. He has also contributed Books & Culture, Christianity Today and re:generation.

This lecture was given in Chicago on October 9, 2016 at the historic First Presbyterian Church of Evanston
