Last week while speaking at Princeton I had a chance to sit on the firing line with my favorite professor of jurisprudence, Robert P. George. He’s not just a brilliant legal theorist and the leading voice on natural law and ethics in the nation, he also knows more about country music than I do. And plays Banjo.

We spoke at the James Madison Program‘s event, “Faith in America: The Role of Religion in the Public Square.” We talked about evangelicals and politics, the centrality of the church, natural law, the meaning of sola Scriptura—and even, briefly, the extent of the atonement.

You can watch the video of our conversation, posted above (with permission from the James Madison Program). You can also listen to the audio of our conversation, which is posted above, as well.

Only when we see how lost we are, we can find our way again. Only when we bury what’s dead can we experience life again. Only when we lose our religion can we be amazed by grace again.
