*Refreshments and Reception After the Event*




For American Christians, debates about national security involve a complex relationship between their faith, the role of their own country in a state-centered world order, and the ills and dangers of that world. Americans hold different ideas about the causes of war and the degree of external threat posed to their country, but in the public discussion the question of what Christian ethics requires of the United States has largely been ignored. Paul Miller and Michael Desch both seek to connect American foreign policy to higher ideals, with vastly divergent conclusions. Join us for a discussion about whether the foundational premises of contemporary American foreign policy can be reconciled with Christianity.
