Welton welcomes back to the show the incredibly sharp Rev. Dr. Susan Thistlethwaite – Professor at Chicago Theological Seminary and frequent Huffington Post contributor – to discuss the latest developments in Russia and Ukraine. She’ll help put these recent events into the context of Russia’s religious and political forces, explaining how the standoff in the Crimea is an outgrowth of Putin’s nationalist zeal and religious absolutism. Dr. Thistlethwaite is a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress. Her most recent book is titled #OccupytheBible: What Jesus Really Said (and Did) about Money and Power. Her HuffPo article on this issue is titled “Putin’s Holy Russia Goes to War.” Download Icon
