Podcast Ep. 397: Interview with Dr. Randall Balmer, Author of “Bad Faith”

In our latest podcast, I interviewed Dr. Randall Balmer, the author of Bad Faith: Race and the Rise of the Religious Right.

Dr. Balmer holds the John Phillips Chair in Religion at Dartmouth College, Dartmouth’s oldest endowed professorship. He previously taught as professor of American religious history at Columbia University for twenty-seven years. In his scholarship, Dr. Balmer focuses on Christianity’s interrelationships with American politics.

We spoke about the real origins of the Religious Right, whether white evangelicals accept their own history, and if Democrats should use churches to their political advantage.
