    The impact of young evangelicals in American politics ft. Ryan Burge

    The impact of young evangelicals in American politics ft. Ryan Burge

    Ryan Burge is one of America's most well-known researchers on religion in America. In this episode, Ryan exclaims, "We can't discount the role of evangelicals in American political life... There's not a more important religious group in the political landscape today than evangelical Christian, period. Nothing comes close."
    The question that remains is how young evangelicals factor into this equation -- and this is the question Kevin tackles with Ryan in this exciting kick-off episode of a brand new series exploring our recent study, Who is influencing young Evangelicals on politics?.

    Are young evangelicals into angry politics?

    Are young evangelicals into angry politics?

    Few know better than Dr. Daniel Bennett about how young evangelicals are approaching politics. As Chair of the political science department at John Brown University, he meets with students every day who are navigating America's tense political landscape and wondering where they fit.
    In this episode we discuss whether evangelical college students are frustrated and/or paranoid about their reputation as evangelical voters, why they study political science in the first place, and why they're listening to such diverse political influences. Daniel discusses his new book coming out soon, with an emphasis on looking to Jesus, who "has overcome to the world," when engaging with politics.
    This episode is a continuation of our brand new series exploring our recent study, Who is influencing young Evangelicals on politics?

Excellent resource!

I have really enjoyed collaborating with Kevin Singer and when he told me he was doing a podcast, I knew it would be excellent. As a listener over the past year, I've been super impressed by the variety and thematic organization of their seasons and episodes. They are taking hard looks at modern evangelicalism and how to relate to and unify with other world religions. Great premise, great show, great folks. Check it out.

Please keep doing them

Please keep doing your podcasts. I just discovered them this last week, and have listened to all of them. They are the biggest source of encouragement to me in this season of life. I have found myself going to YouTube to listen to more from the people you have interviewed.
