March Adult Education: 


March 5: Lecture and Discussion with Robert P. Jones, Ph.D, M.Div. CEO, PRRI

“Quite possibly the most illuminating text for this election year.” —The New York Times Book Review.

Dr. Jones will join us for Adult Education to discuss his latest book, The End of White Christian America. This provocative book outlines the rise and decline of the influence of white Protestant Christians in the cultural fabric of our country.  Using findings from extensive PRRI survey reports, the book explores the origins of the anxiety many in the white Christian community feel in the face of a changing racial and cultural landscape in the United States.

Dr. Jones is a noted scholar of religion and public policy and the author of numerous peer-reviewed articles.  He is frequently featured on major national media outlets, discussing politics, religion and culture.  He holds a Ph.D. in religion from Emory University and a Masters in Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Full biographical details can be found at http://www.prri.org/staff/robert-p-jones-ph-d/

Additional information on the book can be found at http://www.prri.org/end-white-christian-america/

A limited number of copies of the book, The End of White Christian America, will be available in the Lounge during Adult Education for purchase.  It is also available via Amazon and Barnes and Noble online.
