It’s a sign of the times when a figure like Obery Hendricks, Jr.—respected biblical scholar, former seminary president, and elder in the church—calls on his fellow Christians to rise up against the destructive travesty that much of contemporary Christianity has become, to reclaim a faith rooted in justice, radical love, and responsibility for others rather than political dominion driven by self-interest. On July 20, 2021, PRRI hosted a discussion of PRRI board member Obery Hendricks’s new book, Christians Against Christianity: How Right-Wing Evangelicals Are Destroying Our Nation and Our Faith.
