Please join us this Thursday (February 6th) for an advance film screening of J.E.S.U.S.A. along with a videoconference introduction by the film’s writer and director, Kevin Miller from 7-9pm in Candler School of Theology: Room 360. A conversation piece alongside Pitts’ new exhibition Thy Kingdom Come: American Evangelicalism from George Whitefield to Contemporary Politics, J.E.S.U.S.A. is an in-depth exploration of the relationship between Christianity and American nationalism and the violence that can often emerge from it. Far from a new phenomenon, this documentary traces the co-opting of Christianity by the state all the way back to when the Christian faith became the official religion of the Roman Empire.
This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. For information about parking and directions, please visit pitts.emory.edu/parking.
