Paul D. Miller
The Grove City College chapter of the American Enterprise Institute will be hosting a lecture by Dr. Paul D. Miller on Christian nationalism, American identity, and the relationship between church and state at 7 p.m. Nov. 9 in the Morledge Great Room of Rathburn Hall on campus.
Miller, a national security expert and professor at Georgetown University, is the author of “The Religion of American Greatness: What’s Wrong with Christian Nationalism.” He served as Director for Afghanistan and Pakistan on the National Security Council staff in the Bush and Obama administrations and worked as an intelligence analyst for the CIA. He will provide a thought-provoking perspective on a hot-button issue within modern religious and political conversation.
“One of the most contentious issues in the public square is how Christians are supposed to construct a healthy relationship with faith and politics. Radical political actors have given two answers: disenfranchising religion entirely or marrying it to state power. These answers simply aren’t satisfactory for many Americans—if you care about balancing Christian faith with American freedom, this is an event you won’t want to miss,” said senior Isaac Willour, campus AEI executive council chair.
