Like everyone else, we here at LCI enjoy a good crossover episode. Tune in to this installment of the Libertarian Christian Podcast to hear Doug Stuart talk with Protestant Libertarian Podcast host Alex Bernardo about Christianity, libertarianism, and the relationship between the two.
Doug and Alex speak to the fundamental compatibility between Christianity and libertarianism, explaining how they came to be libertarian Christians and what kind of impact that’s had on their lives. The two move on to contemporary strategies on how to sell libertarianism to Christians, as well as how to effectively evangelize to libertarians. Whether you’re interested in these strategies or want to know more about Doug, critical theory, or the behind-the-scenes of this podcast, tune in today!
Alex Bernardo is part of the Christians for Liberty Network and is the host of the Protestant Libertarian Podcast.
