The Phil Vischer Podcast: Ep 17- The Rapture & Politics
Dr. Amy Black is the guest to discuss how Christians should think about politics.
This week’s podcast features Dr. Amy Black, associate professor of political science at Wheaton College. Phil starts off the show by talking about the movie Para Norman and Skye discusses The Real Life of Timothy Green. They answer questions about the podcast on heaven two weeks ago and how the rapture does (or does not) fit in. Dr. Amy Black discusses her book, Honoring God in Red or Blue about the history of Christianity and politics in the US and the necessity of political compromise.
Dr. Amy Black has wide research and teaching interests in the fields of American Politics and Political Behavior. She has her Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and currently serves as the political science department chair at Wheaton College. Her most recent book is Honoring God in Red or Blue: Approaching Politics with Humility, Grace, and Reason (Moody Publishers). At a time when public discourse is too often divisive, Dr. Black calls Christians to a more reasoned and humble approach to politics.
