I’ve been recommending Ross Douthat’s book, Bad Religion: How We Became a Nation of Heretics, both here and elsewhere. Here he sits with Bill Moyers and they get right into it, with Douthat quickly making an argument for robust institutional religion participation in the national dialogue — a religion that is “not separate from politics, that’s involved in politics, deeply influences politics but isn’t captive to a partisan cause of the left or right.”
An excellent discussion — check it out. And note there are additional videos in the right sidebar over there.
UPDATE: More discussion on orthodoxy, heresy and the nation between Douthat and Albert Mohler. Good stuff.
Also, Douthat has thoughts on the passing of Charles Colson that relate.
