90: Historical & Cultural Influences on Evangelicalism. Guest: Karen Swallow Prior

Dr. Karen Swallow Prior joins Amy Fritz on the Untangled Faith podcast to talk about how Stories, Metaphors, and Images have influenced the Evangelical imagination.


We should always be trying to be aware of cultural influences and think about how they shape us as humans. – Karen Swallow Prior

In this episode we:

  • Discuss the cultural forces that drive evangelical norms.

  • Learn some context and origin and development of the evangelical faith.

  • Contend with sentimentality issues complicating the evangelical landscape.

  • Grapple with the issues of incongruence between the message and the messenger.
