Harvard Theologian Harvey Cox’s new book, The Future of Faith, posits that Christianity is undergoing a period of transformation marked by a disregard of dogma in favor of a more open “spirituality,” and a collapse of barriers between different religions. One of the casualties of this transformation is an historically influential actor in American politics: religious fundamentalism.
Listen in as Professor Cox talks discusses the theological and political ramifications of this transformation with E.J. Dionne, Washington Post columnist and author of Souled Out: Reclaiming Faith and Politics After the Religious Right.
