The State of Evangelicalism (USA)

In this episode of the podcast David and Ed Stetzer discuss the current situation facing evangelicalism, particularly in North America. 

Ed studies culture and knows most of the key players in evangelical tradition. 

So he is in a unique position to have his finger on the pulse of evangelical life in North America. 

He and his wife, Donna, were residents in fall 2022 at Yarnton Manor while Ed taught courses for Wycliffe Hall.  As many of you know, Yarnton Manor is a new project of the Lanier Foundation.
