How does our faith inform our public life? We know it addresses our personal lives, our personal holiness, our families, our churches.

But does our faith inform our work? Our enjoyment of art? Of fashion? Of architecture?

Instead of simply relying on the political pundits on the cable news channels, do we have access to theologically shaped ideas to issues like political ideologies, immigration, race relations, and economics?

Our guest on this episode of the Reintegrate Podcast is Dr. Matthew Kaemingk. He is the Richard John Mouw Assistant Professor of Faith and Public Life at Fuller Theological Seminary where he also serves as the Director of the Richard John Mouw Institute of Faith and Public Life. His research and teaching focus on marketplace theology, Islam and political ethics, and public theology.

His latest publication is a book he edited as a festschrift to honor the life and work of Richard Mouw, Reformed Public Theology (Baker Academic, 2021). The book has essays written by experts from all over the world offering insights on issues facing us in the 21st Century, everything from immigration, euthanasia, economics, art, race, Christian practices like prayer, communion, baptism, confession, and piety, as well as political ideologies, populism, and activism.

Other books from Matthew Kaemingk include Christian Hospitality and Muslim Immigration in an Age of Fear (Eerdmans, 2018) and Work and Worship: Reconnecting Our Labor and Liturgy, cowritten with Cory Willson,(Baker Academic, 2020). Check out our podcast from April 2021 where we discuss that excellent book with Matt.
