The Gospel is Political: Dr. Patrick Schreiner

The Gospel is Political: Dr. Patrick SchreinerTheology in the Raw
The gospel is political, but not partisan. The church is a profoundly political community. When we claim Jesus as Lord, we are also quite dangerously claiming that Caesar is not. These are the kinds of things Patrick and I discuss in this somewhat provocative episode. Dr. Patrick Schreiner is the Director of the Residency PhD program and Associate Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He previously taught at Western Seminary in Portland Oregon (2014–20) and received his Ph.D. from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (2014). Patrick is the author of several books including his recently released Political Gospel: Public Witness in a Politically Crazy World, which is the topic of our conversation.
