CJay Engel at The Reformed Libertarian has begun a series of articles that address the rising concern that libertarian Christians often have regarding the social/political shift to the left of pastors, theologians, and other Christian social leaders. More specifically, he addresses the work of Tim Keller, somebody who by no stretch of the imagination is a hardcore leftist. Keller, to his credit, has the tendency to make friends on both sides of the Christian political aisle. And because he has a large following on the conservative theological side, he has a huge influence on how people think about economics, culture, labor, and a range of issues.
It’s certainly worth the time to read CJay’s analysis of Keller. He’s already declared there are more articles on the horizon, but reading each of these is worth the time:
- Is Tim Keller a Marxist?
- A Comment on Tim Keller on Rethinking Work
- More on Keller and Economics: A Transitional Post
