How White Evangelicals Think: The Psychology of Conservative White Christians. This episode, Mike and Tim sit down with Dr. Dave Verhaagen to discuss his new book about how white Evangelicals think. We hear how folks in this country (and probably without as well) look at how many white Christians, particularly evangelicals, continually espouse beliefs and opinions that are seemingly antithetical to the Christian faith (holding racist attitudes / supporting conspiracy theories / aligning with nationalistic and authoritarian movements / becoming hostile toward the different and marginalized). Dave, a nationally board-certified psychologist and author, “tackles the challenge of explaining the psychology behind what has become the unique mind of the modern white Christian. Each chapter explores one or more robust psychological principles that help make sense of why white Christians think like they do” So, how do we define evangelical? How can we all view the world so differently? Where does all the fear come from? And the narcissism?!?
