Dr. Joshua Mitchell addresses the rise of identity politics, its relation to Christianity, and the resulting destruction of societal institutions. He describes how the Christian categories of guilt, innocence, and the scapegoat have been fundamentally perverted in Identity Politics, and therefore only a restoration of the superior Christian account of these terms will redeem society.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before the clock above hits zero.

First Things is proud to be a reader-supported enterprise, and the Spring Campaign is one of only two major reader giving drives each year. It ends on June 30 at 11:59 p.m.

Your gift will fortify First Things to speak boldly on behalf of religious voices in the public square ahead of a pivotal season for our nation and the church.

Please give now.
