Susan Thistlethwaite on the Campbell Conversations

May 11, 2012

Susan Thistlethwaite is a professor at the Chicago Theological Seminary, and an ordained minister of the United Church of Christ. She's the author of "Dreaming of Eden" and the forthcoming "Occupy the Bible." In this conversation with Grant Reeher, she talks about her books, as well as the way that religion and politics intertwine.

Thistlethewaite argues that the proper mixing of the two includes a respect and celebration for the 'vibrant puralism' in American religious life. She also describes 'just peace-making' as a new theology of war and peace.
