Exegetical Uses and Abuses of Christianity in Preaching, Politics
Public expressions and manifestations of Christianity history present through Christian history in vivid and contested ways. This session seeks to forefront the public performances of Christianity and their historicizing power. For example how did indigenous African prophets enlist, subvert, or confirm 19th century Christian colonialism? In contemporary North American politics, what is the role of competing factions and coalitions across the Christian historical spectrum? We envision particular studies of one period which can point to earlier analogous moments and invite broad dialogue.
