On the heels of the Iowa Caucuses, Pulitzer Prize winner Edward Larson tells us what the election of 1800 has in common with the current presidential race when it comes to the use of religion on the campaign trail.

Plus, Forrest Church tells us why the dialogue between religion and politics is not much different today than it was 208 years ago. We’ll hear about the first great battle over church and state.

And, Welton gives his perspective on the results of Thursday’s caucuses, as well as what we can expect as primary season kicks into full gear.

State of Belief explores the intersection of religion with politics, culture, media, and activism. Through interviews with newsmakers and celebrities, reports from the field, and his own commentary, Welton shows how religion and radical freedom are best friends and how the religious right is wrong – wrong for America and bad for religion.
