Doing Theology in the Age of Trump

A Critical Report on Christian Nationalism
  • By Jeffrey W. Robbins, Clayton Crockett
$22.00
Product Description

This book is a work of theological resistance. It is not so much about the presidency of Donald Trump as it is about what his popularity and rise to power reveal about the state of Christianity and the moral character of the evangelical Right in the United States today. More specifically, it is about the threat of white Christian nationalism, which is the particular form that the nationalist populist movement of Trumpism has adopted for itself. The contributors are all fellows from the Westar Institute's academic seminar on God and the Human Future, and include many of the leading figures in theology and Continental philosophy of religion. This volume provides a form of theopolitical resistance based on intersectionality. The authors recognize how the various forms of oppression interrelate to contribute to a vast, dynamic, and seeming impenetrable network of systemic injustice and marginalization. These essays demonstrate that politics need not be played as a zero-sum game with a winner-take-all mentality, and that a critical theology is as urgently needed and as relevant now as ever. ""An unfortunately crucial collection of bold essays that assail the white Christian nationalism of our terrifying times and offer counter-political theologies of the multitudinous, the minoritarian, and the earthly."" --Mary-Jane Rubenstein, Wesleyan University Jeffrey W. Robbins is a Professor of Religion and Philosophy at Lebanon Valley College (Annville, Pennsylvania).
