Power & Politics in Theology with Laurel Schneider

Why should everyone care about theology?  Laurel Schneider joins us this week for some good theo-nerding.  We have too much fun tackling just a few non-controversal theological topics like…Politics, Culture, Power, Social Justice, Feminism, Church History, Economics, Freedom, Liberty, Queer Theory, Occupy Wall Street, Ayn Rand, Karl Barth, Capitalism, Democracy, and a few other goodies.

Laurel Schneider is Professor of Theology, Ethics, and Culture at the Chicago School of Theology.  If you are wise you have surely gotten yourself a copy of Laurel’s edited volume Polydoxy: Theology of Multiplicity and Relation since both Catherine Keller and John Thatamanil have discussed it on previous episodes.  Now you just got check out Laurel’s Beyond Monotheism: A Theology of Multiplicity.

Jeremy, thanks I didn't know that comments were to only reflect the views, and not the subjects, of the podcasts.

DMF, what's up with all these links? I know I can get off on tangents, but these links are only loosely related to the blog post. There's quite a gap separating Laurel Schneider and John Milbank. The Christian social vision beyond left and right? That's cute. Chances are it's closer to the right.
