In the first two parts of our conversation with Dr. Curt Thompson, we discussed why it is important to have “embodied encounters” with our civic systems and our political opponents, and what Good Friday can teach us about dealing with the challenges those encounters present. In this third part of our interview, Dr. Thompson gets into what Christian eschatology means for our attempts to deal with political diversity in the church.
