Evangelical Trumpism: Then and Now Part I. w/ Tim Alberta

Part I of Brad’s interview with journalist Tim Alberta, author of the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory: Evangelicalism in an Age of Extremism. In his intro, Brad goes through what he learned from the book – and hints at his criticisms of it (those are coming next week). In the interview, Brad asks Tim about his experience as a pastor’s kid, what changed in evangelical culture during COVID and the Trump years, and why conspiracy and resentment are now the driving forces of this religious tradition.
