Understanding American Evangelicalism in the Age of Trump

Lecture Description

Over 80% of American evangelicals voted for Donald Trump in 2016. What does this tell us about the current state of American evangelicalism? This lecture will explore the history of the evangelical movement since World War 2 and its close connection to the Republican Party. It will focus on how many conservative evangelicals, some of whom supported Trump, use the past to promote their political ideas.
