What is the Center for Christianity and Public Life?
The Center for Christianity and Public Life aims to develop Christian thought leadership and resources promoting pluralism, democracy, and the positive role of Christianity in public life and the common good.
Why do we think this project is important?
This grant supported the launch of the Center for Christianity and Public Life. The Center employs a multi-faceted approach to meet today’s challenges, which include toxic politics, a divided church, and a decline of confidence in Christianity as a public resource among both Christians and the general public. Through creative public interventions, and the cultivation of Christian leadership, the Center will raise the confidence of Christians and the broader public that Christianity continues to offer salient, essential contributions to the issues of our day. The nature of Christian influence in public life, and therefore our public life itself, will be healthier as a result.
