Neil Shenvi and Pat Sawyer: On Critical Theory and Social Justice

Podcast Icon
Ways to Listen

In the Christ and Culture podcast with Ken Keathley and Benjamin Quinn, we explore how the Christian faith intersects all avenues of today’s culture through conversations with leading thinkers.

Today’s Episode:

What is Critical Theory (CT), and how should Christians think about it? Drs. Neil Shenvi and Pat Sawyer join us to discuss their new book, Critical Dilemma, which was named World Magazine’s 2023 Book of the Year. They explain why CT is so skeptical of received wisdom, how it’s different than critical thinking, the big emphasis on power plays, and whether it’s okay for Christians to use the phrase “social justice.” (The conversation begins at 5:45)

Plus, in “Headlines” (1:05), Dr. Keathley offers ways you can already be praying for the 2024 election. And in “On My Bookshelf” (35:25), Drs. Shenvi and Sawyer tell us what they’re reading right now.
