The Case Against Christian Nationalism

Ep 60: The Case Against Christian Nationalism

Ep 60: The Case Against Christian Nationalism

In this episode, I respond to Stephen Wolfe’s popular book The Case for Christian Nationalism, which has become the most significant written work on modern Christian nationalism. Based on a drafted review I wrote for the Libertarian Christian Institute, I look at six important concepts that Wolfe outlines in his book and respond to each of them.

I critique Wolfe’s presentation of Christian nationalism with Biblical interpretation, theology, and political philosophy. If you need a concise primer on Christian nationalism and the Christian libertarian response, this is the show for you! Here are the six concepts we cover in the show:

I. Defining ‘Christian Nationalism’

II. Nationalism and Government are a Part of God’s Good Creation

III. A Christian Nation Needs Christian Laws

IV. The Christian Prince

V. The Justification of Violent Revolution

VI. American History
