Charting the rise of the Evangelicals

Evangelicals used to be on the periphery of American life, but are now incredibly influential in Washington, on Wall Street, and in every corner of society. Sociologist D. Michael Lindsay of Rice University charts the religious group’s rise to power in his new book, Faith in the Halls of Power: How Evangelicals Joined the American Elite. He joins Coy Barefoot on WINA’s “Charlottesville–Right Now!” to describe the research that went into his work.
