Christian Realism for Terrifying Times
Full Title Christian Realism for Terrifying Times: A Transatlantic Introduction from Niebuhr, Butterfield, and Kuyper
This lecture will feature an introduction to Christian Realism as a trans-Atlantic movement, one with peculiar notes, but consistent, Augustinian themes, in each of its home countries. In conversation with Abraham Kuyper, Herbert Butterfield, and the well-known American, Reinhold Niebuhr, we will introduce Christian Realism by looking at the "Amsterdam School," the early-English School, and the American School of Christian Realism in international relations, and the diverse accents that emerge as distinct from a middle-power, a fallen super-power, and a rising super-power context. Taken together, these thinkers and the schools they represent, give us an important picture of "Christian Realism for Terrifying Times."
