Pitfalls in combatting persecution

By Judd Birdsall 07 May 2019

A great number of Western Christians have laudably invested their time, money, and energy to confront the massive global challenge of religious persecution. Sadly, their effectiveness has too often been limited or undermined by several common mistakes.

This talk explores seven of these pitfalls and points to Christian principles that enable us to more effectively advance religious freedom for all. Judd's goal in pointing out these dangers is not to condemn any particular organisation or tactical approach, but rather to commend a more considered, capacious, and constructive promotion of religious freedom.

This talk is based on Judd Birdsall's Cambridge Paper, available to read online here

In this new paper, Tony Watkins argues that although Pullman insists that this world is all there is, he seems constantly drawn towards ideas of transcendence.
