Stop worrying about new atheism, and start watching ‘woke’ atheism

I wrote a blog for Christianity magazine on the tenth anniversary of the ‘atheist bus’ campaign. This milestone made me think about how much has changed since then. While ‘new atheism’ seemed to be a threat to many Christians at the time, it’s since died down. But ‘woke’ atheism, or identity politics, that I’ve written about a few times recently, has surged in that time – and I think this is a trend that the church really needs to address.

Apologies & are you confused by identity politics? And should Christians get involved?

Hi everyone,

I really apologise for not updating this blog more regularly. I have been writing now and then for Christian publications, but not noting so here…

The most in-depth piece I’ve written in recent months was about identity politics for Christianity magazine. Take a look here.

The aim was two-fold: one try to describe the phenomenon for those who are bemused by it all. Secondly was to ponder on whether Christians should be involved. Huge subjects for a short magazine piece, but really important ones… let me know what you think.
