This week Jerran and Casey discuss Dr. John Piper's recent foray into political action. We discuss some strengths and a lot of weaknesses. We also examine (and compare) Ice Cube's recent news-making as he met with both Trump and Biden's camps to push the Contract With Black America.
Public Theologians is a podcast in which we take as a starting place the James Cone quote that "all theological language is political language."
