Welcome to a special bonus episode of the Theology Nerd Podcast with the Dr. Tripp Fuller. This is a shorter Q&A episode, where your friendly, local internet theologian answers questions submitted by you.

Today Tripp is joined by Scott Paeth, professor and ethicist at DePaul University, to help answer your questions, including:

what is gained by engaging with Karl Marx if you’re a Christian?

Scott and Tripp discuss the affinities between Marxism and Christianity, how capitalism is contrary to Christian values, how Marxism and Christianity draw upon each other, how money and possessions determine a lot about our relationships, and the Marxist critique of religion.

Plus, how our unquestioned ideology sustains our economic systems, and what Marx really has to say about religion.
