William Cavanaugh, professor of theology at Depaul University, is a powerful reinterpreter of the theopolitical ideologies that shape the West and helps to deconstruct our thoroughly modern approach to religion. Paul Kennedy’s Ideas (without a doubt one of the most consistently insightful audio programs available) interviews Cavanaugh to talk about his recent book Migrations of the Holy. He discusses the founding myths of liberalism, the ways this obfuscates and twists our interactions with modern religious groups (eg think of the West’s strained relationship with Islam) and possible directions for developing a truly Christian response to them. I highly recommend it.
