Frances Fitzgerald, author, The Evangelicals: The Struggle to Shape America

Intolerant. Bigoted. Even hateful. For many Americans, these words describe Christians who label themselves “evangelical.” Many evangelical Christians see themselves in a very different way: Born-again. Bible-centered. Good-news-bringing. But one thing is inarguable: evangelical Christians have played a significant role in making America what it is today. This week on State of Belief, Welton will speak with Pulitzer prize-winning author Frances Fitzgerald, author of a comprehensive new book entitled, The Evangelicals: The Struggle to Shape America.
