Molly Worthen and Evangelicalism

How did evangelicals emerge as such a powerful faction within the Republican Party? How important is the Christian Right today? And what about the Christian Left?

For the tenth episode of Campaign Context, Professor Molly Worthen (University of North Carolina) joined me for a discussion on evangelicalism and religion in politics. Worthen is a leading voice among religious historians and an expert on evangelicalism. She is the author of Apostles of Reason: The Crisis of Authority in American Evangelicalism and The Man on Whom Nothing Was Lost: The Grand Strategy of Charles Hill. Worthen is also a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times.
