Defeating Religious Nationalism with Faithful Patriotism

About the Event

One of the nation’s foremost experts on the intersection of faith and international affairs, Chris Seiple has traveled the world over, meeting with religious and political leaders of all faiths, and encountering what he calls “the worst of religion and the best of faith.” According to Seiple, the rise of religious nationalism poses dangers the world over, especially to religious minorities. In his talk, he will explore how to counter religious nationalism through what he calls “faithful patriotism” and “covenantal pluralism” – especially through the promotion of cross-cultural religious literacy. A former Marine Corps infantry officer, Chris Seiple has served as Chair of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on the Role of Faith and is co-founder of The Cradle Fund, which restores endangered Christians and members of other religions/ethnic groups in the Middle East to safety.
