Against Christian Nationalism

Against Christian Nationalism August 5, 2022

Is America a Christian nation? Is any nation a Christian nation? To spoil the ending, the answer is “no.” But that doesn’t stop large numbers of Christians of all stripes from claiming that their nation is God’s chosen nation, a Christian nation, and one which has perhaps gone astray, but which just needs a bit of revival to put us back on track. In its worst forms this is heretical nonsense, but even in its better forms it is at best problematically bad theology. Or so claims Paul Miller in his new book The Religion of American Greatness: What’s Wrong With Christian Nationalism. Miller is a veteran, a professor at Georgetown University, author of numerous books, and founder of this review blog. So he’s worth listening to 🙂
