Catholic theologian Douglas Farrow and Lutheran political
scholar Andrew Busch be a part of the present to debate their latest essays
on the coronavirus lockdown, and assess the explanations and prospects
for civil disobedience.

In “The Well being-First Heresy,” Farrow examines the responses of
Catholic and different Christian leaders to the state’s orders to stop
company worship. No matter concessions the Church could make to the
state as to the circumstances underneath which worship is held, she could
not merely droop her correct actions indefinitely till the
state provides the phrase.

In “The Limits of Experience,” Busch assesses the place “following
the consultants” (which of them? in what fields?) has gotten us up to now and
factors out the risks of pretending to interchange statesmanship with
experience.
