Deep divisions in American politics have spawned serious splits in faith and communities. Playing out in court rooms, legislative chambers, and town halls across the country, disputes over the transgender identity, abortion, and immigrations, foretell the domination of the 2024 elections by some version of Christian Nationalism even as surveys reveal an unprecedented dissolution of institutional religion and hint at its transformation. Come prepared to explore issues that are fracturing denominations and giving rise to new coalitions bound to impact the political landscape in their turn.
