Politics in a Religious World: The Relationship Between Religion and U.S. Foreign Policy

Eric Patterson, Regent University professor and author of Just American Wars: Ethical Dilemmas in U.S. Military History and Politics in a Religious World, will discuss the relationship between religion and U.S. foreign policy. Patterson will argue that we live in a highly religious world and, even if we were a totally secular society, because religion matters elsewhere, it must matter to U.S. diplomats, aid workers, and all those in this realm.
