John Fea - Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump

Upcoming Event
Saturday, July 7, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

As a historian and an evangelical Christian, Fea is uniquely suited to explain why some 80% of white evangelicals are Trump followers. His illuminating study argues that religion and politics have long influenced each other in this country, and he traces the rise of Trump as the logical outcome of a long-standing evangelical approach to public life defined by the politics of fear, the pursuit of worldly power, and a nostalgic longing for an American past. By understanding this perspective, Fea, professor of American history at Messiah College and author of Was America Founded as a Christian Nation? urges his fellow believers to replace fear with hope, the pursuit of power with humility, and nostalgia with history, and helps all of us see our way to a united future.
