+  The Next Great Awakening

  • Description: Historians debate the precise number of “Great Awakenings” that have profoundly affected American culture, politics and history. They generally agree that the First Great Awakening of the mid-18th Century set in motion the ideas that formed the national mind and spirit during the Revolution, while the Second Great Awakening of the early 20th Century shaped the social dynamics of the Civil War. George Weigel joins us with a look at the next Great Awakening and what it means for our political discourse.
