A recent survey asked Christians of different denominations, percentage wise, how important evangelization was to their understanding of the Faith. Mainline Protestants answered 60%.

 4:20 – Why Did Liberalism Fail? What Happens Next?

But we can’t forget that it is still an evolving ideology, not the natural end-state of political evolution.

We’ll talk with Patrick Deneen.

 5:00 – Social Science Apologetics: Resolving to Build a Better Church
