Host Jen Pollock Michel is joined by repeat-podcast guest Amy Peterson and first-time guest Lee Camp, for a heartfelt discussion of political and ethical formation in the wake of the disorienting 2020 election in the U.S.
Amy Peterson is a writer, teacher, and postulant living in North Carolina. Her first book, Dangerous Territory: My Misguided Quest to Save the World was published in 2017. Her second book, Where Goodness Still Grows: Reclaiming Virtue in an Age of Hypocrisy, released in January of this year. Amy’s work has also appeared in Image, The Millions, Washington Post, Christianity Today, and Christian Century. She was a guest with Tim Hoiland in our second episode of the podcast.
Lee Camp is professor of theology and ethics at Lipscomb University. He has an MDiv from Abilene Christian University and a PhD in Moral Theology and Christian Ethics from Notre Dame. He writes and speaks about being human: the habits and ways of life that lead to flourishing, including ways that transcend various hostilities and partisanships. He has published three popular books: Mere Discipleship, Who Is My Enemy? and most recently, Scandalous Witness.
