Video | The Futures of Progressive Christianities


(system) #1

I am happy to see my friend Peter Laarman holding forth in this informed discussion with David Gushee on the futures of the evangelical and mainline Christian movements.

Are they converging?

What does "progressive" in Christianity mean? Or "moderate?"

Is America really entering a post-Christian Right era?

Why do only 16% of non-Christians in their late teens and twenties, who grew up in church, say they have a "good impression" of Christianity?

Is same-sex marriage really worth the fight for conservatives?

Is the White House office of faith-based initiatives an abomination to church/state separation?

David Gushee teaches at Mercer University.

Peter Laarman is the executive director of Progressive Christians Uniting.
