JANUARY 31, 2008

The revival of today's evangelical movement can be traced to the late 60's. However the first time it burst into the national consciousness was during the election of Jimmy Carter for president. Jimmy Carter ran as a “Born Again Christian”. He was a Democrat. Abortion or gay rights were not important issues in his campaign and apparently not among the voters who elected him. We will visit Jimmy Carter's home town . In Plains' churches and in a dialogue with the town's inhabitants, I will try to gauge the town's mood and feelings about religion and politics on the eve of another election, more than 30 years later.

A view of the entire journey.
