With all the focus on faith in this year’s presidential election, we decided to go to the co-author of the new book The Presidents and their Faith: From Washington to Obama for some perspective. Dr. Darrin Grinder, chair of the English Department at Northwest Nazarene University and associate professor of American Literature, talks with our host Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy about the historical reality of a candidate’s use of religion on the campaign trail and in governing. Be sure to listen in to find out what Dr. Grinder means when he writes “no serious candidate for the White House can run the risk of violating the norm that one be religious. The candidate should be not just religious, but acceptably religious.”
