Video: Bruce Riley Ashford on religious liberty in a secular age

The Acton Lecture Series resumed on July 18 with a lecture by Bruce Riley Ashford, provost and professor of theology and culture at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, speaking on the subject of how to maintain respect for religious liberty in a rapidly secularizing culture. The West has been going through a process whereby all references to God must be stripped from the public square, and religion itself is increasingly seen as implausible or obsolete.  Ashford tackles the tough question of how Christians can work to protect society’s most basic institution—the family—and how to ensure that space remains available in society for believers to live, work, and raise their children in accord with their beliefs.
