Public Theologians

75 EpisodesProduced by Casey HobbsWebsite

Christian theology animates leftist political action. A conversation among socialists, the Christian Left, fellow travelers and beloved comrades.


Fran Quigley - Religious Socialism: the time is right

Fran Quigley, the author of Religious Socialism: Faith in Action for a Better World (Orbis Books) joins the conversation to discuss the long history of socialism in religious communities. In this conversation we focus on the legacy of socialistic Christians (predating the term by 1700 years or so) going all the way back to the book of Acts and the early Church Fathers. We also got to talking about the greats, from Eugene Debs to Cornel West, Angela Cowser and Colleen Shaddox. 
We also feature a long (and persuasive, I might add) pitch to join the DSA's Religion and Socialism Working Group!
About Fran Quigley:
