God is My Running Mate: The Bible in Contemporary Politics
By Cameron McKenzie, MDiv, Associate Professor of Old Testament
Part of the Providence Public Lecture Series 2016, a community service for the general public. Admission is free – no registration is required.
In today's political landscape, the left, the right, and everyone in between, whether in Europe or North America, seem compelled to use the Bible to bolster their political causes and careers. How has the Bible come to exert so much influence on public policy, from debates about the environment, abortion and human sexuality, to foreign policy and the economy?
Cameron McKenzie is the Academic Dean at Providence University College. His research interests include the Bible and the arts, children's illustrated Bibles, reception history of the Bible, and the construction of gender in the Bible.
