Joseph Webster - What Can Immersing Ourselves in the Beliefs of Others Contribute to Our Own Lives of Faith?
What's it like to live in the constant anticipation of the end of time? How do communities which see time as short live out their faith and interpret the world around them? How does the study of communities such as the Plymouth Brethren or Jehovah's Witnesses help us think about mainstream Christian theology? And how might personally entering another religious culture inform and challenge our own faith?
In today's show we are talking to Dr Joseph Webster. Joseph is an Assistant Professor in the Study of Religion at the University of Cambridge. His research combines theology and anthropology, and engages with big themes such as time, history and violence.
