My guest is Matthew Kaemingk. His most recent book is Christian Hospitality and Muslim Immigration in an Age of Fear. In it he offers a thought-provoking Christian perspective on the growing debates over Muslim presence in the West. Rejecting both fearful nationalism and romantic multiculturalism, Kaemingk makes the case for a third way—a Christian pluralism that is committed to both the historic Christian faith and the public rights, dignity, and freedom of Islam.
Rev. Dr. Matthew Kaemingk is assistant professor of Christian Ethics at Fuller Theological Seminary.

Matthew earned his Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary and holds doctoral degrees in Systematic Theology from the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam and in Christian Ethics from Fuller Theological Seminary.
