Evangelicals and Interfaith Engagement
Evangelicals and Interfaith Engagement: Assessing Evangelical Resources, Motivations, Hesitancies and Hopes
Evangelical Christians play a critical role in shaping American civil society and culture, yet evangelicals as an identity group are often stereotyped and weaponized in today’s polarized discourse. How do evangelicals understand their relationship with other religious and non-religious individuals and communities? What does interfaith engagement mean from an evangelical perspective? What are the barriers that often prevent evangelicals from participating in interfaith partnerships?
Michael and Melissa Wear’s new report, published in partnership with Interfaith Youth Core, addresses these questions and offers meaningful reflections on the future of evangelicals and interfaith engagement in America. The report also serves as a useful guide for leaders from diverse religious or philosophical traditions who are eager to reach out to their evangelical neighbors but don’t know where to start. Join the co-authors, and several evangelical leaders who participated in their research, to explore key themes from the report and engage in an interactive conversation about evangelicals and interfaith engagement in America.
