"Apostles of Reason" Finds Historical Explanations For Political Polarity

Apostles of Reason by Molly Worthen

Oxford University Press

    

Evangelical Christians are a diverse group with similar questions but vastly different answers. 

A new book by UNC-Chapel Hill history professor Molly Worthen looks at the history of modern evangelicalism.  Host Frank Stasio talks with Worthern about "Apostles of Reason” (Oxford University Press/2014) and how evangelical discord connects to current political polarity. 

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
