Christians are citizens of a completely different political regime:
the kingdom of God. As patriots of another homeland, living in
whatever country we find ourselves as alien citizens, what is our
role in society and what are our obligations in the political
arena? This issue of Plough Quarterly fleshes out an active,
constructive, countercultural vision for the church today.
In this issue:
- Plough asks Benedict Option author Rod Dreher about Donald Trump, religious liberty, and Christian community.
- Eberhard Arnold introduces a young storm trooper to the church’s dangerous politics.
- Resident Aliens author Will Willimon applies Arnold’s message to our own historical moment.
- Was Thomas More’s Utopia a pipe dream or a blueprint for actual communities?
- A descendant of farmers questions Wendell Berry’s agrarian idyll.
- Recent Middle Eastern converts risk their lives to follow Christ.
- A naturalized American finds herself at war with her homeland.
- A photojournalist asks immigrants what peace means to them.
- Is T. S. Eliot’s vision of a Christian society a lost cause?
- Jason Landsel looks at the legacy of Joe Strummer and punk rock.
Then there’s new poetry, book reviews, a children’s story, and art by William Blake, Brigitta Racz, Zhu Jiuyang, Christina Maendel, Bill Jacklin, and Neil Welliver.
