We’re locked and loaded with two fantastic interviews for you this week on the latest episode of “The RJ Moeller Show!” First up: author Dr. Hunter Baker, associate dean of arts and sciences and associate professor of political science at Union University in Tennessee. We wanted to have Dr. Baker on specifically to talk about his book, “The End of Secularism,” which posits that secularism fails as an instrument designed to create superior social harmony and political rationality to that which is available with theistic alternatives. In the book, Baker also seeks to demonstrate that secularism is far from the best or only way to enjoy modernity’s fruits of religious liberty, free speech and democracy. For more information on Hunter and for links to his many columns and essays, check out his website here, and don’t forget to follow him on Twitter at @hunterbaker! Up next, RJ has the opportunity to chat with his friend Tim King, director of communications for the Sojourners organization in Washington, D.C. Tim is a graduate of North Park University in Chicago with degrees in both theology and philosophy. After graduation, he worked for the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) as an organizer on the South Side of Chicago. Since joining Sojourners, Tim has been a strong and public advocate for the social justice movement. We invited Mr. King on to discuss the newly launched “Voting For Us” campaign that Jim Wallis and Sojourners is promoting in the hopes of involving more young religious Americans in the 2012 election. Tim is also active on Twitter and you can follow him at @tmking. Stream the show below, or help the show grow by subscribing to us (for free) on iTunes!
