Should You Stay (Evangelical) Or Should You Go?



As we discussed last episode, it is indeed a crazy moment to be an Evangelical Christian.  Then again, so what?  Does that mean Evangelicals should leave their churches or their tradition to search for greener pastures?  As we hear from authors Danielle (D.L.) Mayfield (3:30), Katelyn Beaty (33:00), and Jemar Tisby (47:30), the answer is: “it depends.”

It’s a Crazy Moment for Evangelicalism



What a time to be an Evangelical in America, or to have been raised as one: there’s all the politics, racial tension, “parallel institutions,” and culture wars that continue to rage, but there is also evidence of serious benefits for churchgoers.  This week, Dan and Ellen are greatly helped in their understandings of Evangelicalism — it’s roots and where it stands today — by two scholars, Darryl G. Hart and James K. Wellman.  Also, Ellen’s bloopers are probably the funniest yet (did you know that if you listen all the way to the end there are usually outtakes?).  Next week: “Should You Stay (Evangelical) Or Should You Go?”

While You Were Evangelizing: Hell (with Dale B. Martin)



Welcome to a new season of Depolarize!  Dan and Ellen are excited to be back in the saddle, and this week we are debuting a new episode style: While You Were Evangelizing. What was going on in the more liberal-leaning Mainline Protestant church over the last 70 years?  Dale B. Martin helps us compare and contrast Evangelical and Mainline approaches to the question of Hell.
