Do You Muddle?: How do Americans use the Bible to interpret American public life? President Gary Peluso-Verdend explores three possibilities and his own understanding of an "muddled middle" interpreter of the Bible in his latest blog.
Three Reasons Why Christianity in the U.S. Works Better as Critic than Cheerleader: In his newest blog post, Phillips Seminary President Gary Peluso-Verdend writes, "It is not just good law that leaders of religious organizations, speaking for their organizations, are forbidden to endorse candidates. It is good theology. Christianity in a democracy works better as a critical, transformative force than it does as an endorser or enforcer of governing policy."
Stewardship Department Introduces Student Intern: The Stewardship Department has a student intern, Paige Clark, working in the office. She will start her Master of Arts in Social Justice studies this fall.
Bamboo and the Perniciousness of Racism: A whitewashed, unchallenged story of American goodness and rightness is a story of white supremacy, an evidence of a pernicious rhizome.

July Fourth: Two Christian Visions of the U.S.: Phillips Seminary President Gary Peluso-Verdend juxtaposes two broad versions, composite sketches, of Christian-informed visions for what the U.S. should be. He thinks you’ll see how the visions also express competing judgments about where the U.S. is and needs to go.
