#159 Deep Conversation w/ Mark Noll | What’s An Evangelical? It’s Complicated| Pt. 2

The second part of our conversation where Travis and Mark continue their discussion of evangelicalism.

What happens when what we claim we believe doesn’t match up with the way we live? When we claim to believe in a new birth through Christ but still cling to beliefs, ways of looking at the world and even actions that are a lot worse than problematic? 

What caused evangelicalism to become so politicized in the US? should we even call ourselves evangelicals anymore?

If you thought part one of my conversation with Mark Noll was complicated, well, I hate to say it, but it’s going to get more complicated. We discuss evangelicalism, indigenous peoples, global evangelicalism, and a whole lot more!

McAnaney Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame and before that he served as Professor of History and Theological Studies at Wheaton College.
