Interview with Dr Philip Gorksi

Philip Gorski, author of the new book, American Covenant: A History of Civil Religion from the Puritans to the Present (Princeton University Press) joined us for a lively and topical discussion. Gorski, Professor of Sociology and Religious Studies at Yale, also sat down with our Associate Director, Jane Little, to tell her why today, more than ever, we need to avoid both religious nationalism and radical secularism – and find what he calls a vital center.
