Jones has authored three books and many articles on religion and public policy, the press release says. His newest book is appropriately titled “The End of White Christian America.”
“He will discuss the United States’ current political landscape leading up to the 2016 presidential election—including the rise of cultural protectionism, racial tensions and the Black Lives Matter movement, the apocalyptic tone of arguments regarding LGBT rights, and how each issue has been influenced by the waning power of ‘white Christian America’,” the press release says.
