Idols, Identity Politics, and Lies of Our Age

How Should Christians Respond to the Challenges of our Time?

Brought to you by The Intercollegiate Studies Institute, The American Conservative, and Patrick Henry College

Learn about the cult of modern identity politics and the unique threat that this new religion poses to society. Are we a country of freedom? Does the United States stand for equality? And if so, what kind of equality? What should we do to address the questions of the past but also maintain a perspective oriented towards the future? 

These times are unlike any other in American history, but Rod Dreher, Joshua Mitchell, and Daniel Mahoney are the perfect guides as you navigate this new era.

Part 1: Daniel J. Mahoney: “The Ersatz Religion of our Time”

Part 2: Joshua Mitchell: “2021: The Year of the Scapegoat”

"Twenty years ago, when we first opened the doors of Patrick Henry College, we knew we had undertaken an endeavor so large that only God could bring it to fruition. . . . In the process, He shows us more of Himself and we learn more of what it means to abide in Him through all of life’s ups and downs—to know Him as 'our help in ages past and hope for years to come.'" — President Jack W.
