"Faith and Politics" with Neil J. Young

Download MP3

Jimmy Carter is widely viewed to be the most authentically Christian president that America has ever had. On this episode of Recollecting Carter, I talk with Dr. Neil J. Young about Carter's faith and why many Christian voters turned instead towards Ronald Reagan in the 1980 presidential election. Young's book We Gather Together: The Religious Right and the Problem of Interfaith Politics unpacks the complicated relationship between belief and political action.
