The Changing State of American Evangelicalism

American Evangelicalism is in a state of change.  The church today has been influenced both by God's word and the culture.  Ed Stetzer talks with Karen Swallow Prior about the influences that impact some of our deepest beliefs in ways we don't always see.  They'll also discuss what the term "evangelical" means today.
