David Yount

David Yount, journalist, religion columnist, and former seminary chairman and college dean, takes the listener on an astonishing survey of the state of Christian faith in the U.S. today. Yount struggles with the paradoxes of the pervasive influences of Christianity in the U.S., even as this country seems so far adrift from Christian priorities. He ponders megachurches, church shopping, parachurches, fundamentalism, liberalism, social gospel, controversies over sexuality, and the charismatic movement (just to name a few) and repeatedly observes that Christian faith in America is "mile-wide" and "inch-deep."
