Populism And The Politics Of Jesus


We are pleased to share this lecture by Angus Ritchie in which he exposes the fake populism in which wealth and power remains in the hands of elites. He explores fears prevalent among the churches of the ‘multitude’ and finds that the politics of Jesus places the poor at the heart of the church. In doing so he offers a way forward for the church to embrace an ‘authentic populism’ that builds up local leadership and reverses the logic of paternalistic reform. First delivered as the Annual Micah Lecture 2019 at Liverpool Cathedral, the ideas here are fleshed out further in Angus’s book, Inclusive Populism.
