The Eleventh Annual Herbener Lecture: The Psychology of Christian Nationalism
In this time of political and religious discord, having an understanding of the Christian nationalist movement is critical for the Gospel work of social justice. What attracts people to extremist views, and how can we talk with family members, friends, and congregation members who have “gone down the rabbit hole” of right-wing politics and conspiracy theories? As the 2024 election cycle draws closer, the Rev. Dr. Pamela Cooper-White will give a presentation based on her new book “The Psychology of Christian Nationalism” (Fortress Press, 2022), and engage in Q&A and discussion with participants around these critical and timely issues.
Join the Luther Center of North Texas on November 16th at 7pm at King of Glory- Dallas. Find more information and reserve your seat here.
