Televangelism and the Rebirth of the American Prosperity Gospel
April 16, 2014
Kate Bowler, Assistant Professor of the History of Christianity in the United States, Duke University Divinity School
Contrary to most predictions, the prosperity gospel didn’t die with the fall of Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart. There is a new form of the prosperity gospel that promises faith, health, wealth, and victory to a fresh generation of American believers. Meet the brand new preachers of the movement and learn how this theology of modern living is becoming one of the most popular religious movements in America.
