068 - What Atheism Can't Deliver with Christian Smith

This week on the podcast I speak with author and sociologist, Christian Smith.

Christian Smith is the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Sociology and Director of the Center for the Study of Religion and Society at the University of Notre Dame. Smith is well known for his research focused on religion, adolescents and emerging adults, and social theory. Smith received his MA and PhD from Harvard University in 1990 and his BA from Gordon College in 1983. He was a Professor of Sociology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for 12 years before his move to Notre Dame. Christian is the author of at least 17 books including the extremely influential, "Divided by Faith: Evangelical Religion and the Problem of Race in America," published in 2000. His new book is entitled, "Atheist Overreach: What Atheism Can’t Deliver."
