In his new book, The End of White Christian America, Robert P. Jones challenges us to grasp a new reality — that America is no longer a majority white Christian nation.
- How white Christians have already become a minority in America, and how white anxieties around this seismic shift are finding expression in public life
- Donald Trump’s paradoxical appeal to white conservative Christian voters
- The strident rise of a white “politics of nostalgia” following the election of the nation’s first black president
- The stark disagreements between white and black Americans over the use of lethal force by police, the fairness of the justice system, and the broader #BlackLivesMatter movement
- The apocalyptic tone of arguments over same-sex marriage and LGBT rights
How these recent demographic and cultural changes are shaping—and often distorting—the very conceptualization of principles such as inequality, fairness, and religious freedom
