"The Exvangelicals": An Interview with NPR Reporter Sarah McCammon

56m | May 1, 2024
There is a movement of people who grew up in evangelical Christianity out of those circles. These are ex-evangelicals or "exvangelicals."  Now Sarah McCammon, a politics reporter for NPR, has given us the first book-length treatment of this movement and the individuals within it.  In this interview we talk about her very evangelical upbringing (and wax nostalgic about growing up in the 90s along the way). She tells us her thoughts about what's leading to this disillusionment with evangelicalism. We talk about how race affects people differently within and outside evangelicalism. And she tells us what it's like to be a journalist in these politically tenuous times.  Order "The Exvangelicals" here.  Buy my books:  Subscribe to my Substack:  Get your merch:  Learn more about your ad choices.
