Episode Type: Book Discussion

In this book discussion on the Share Life podcast, I'm speaking with David Koyzis, author of Political Visions & Illusions: A Survey and Christian Critique of Contemporary Ideologies. David holds a PhD in government and international studies from the University of Notre Dame and taught undergraduate political science for thirty years.

David argues in his book that what we believe about politics matters. In a unique and overarching way, David synthesizes the ideologies, and what he also calls the idolatries of liberalism, conservatism, nationalism, democratism, and socialism into a larger meta-story. He explains these ideologies' points of view, where they aim to provide a redemptive human story, and how their redemptive story fails to recognize the deeper problem and achieve their political ambitions.

The book is a fabulous framework for navigating politics while also transcending the emotional pull that comes with political crises or deeply rooted political belief-based discussions. We're often driven by these ideologies without recognizing how they're fueling our point of view and behavior.
