About this event

Join us on Tuesday, October 11 at 5 pm for an event with journalist David Clary. David will be discussing his new book, Soul Winners: The Ascent of America's Evangelical Entrepreneurs. Please note that this is a ticketed event. Tickets are $29.95 and include a copy of the book. Refreshments will be provided. The event is limited to 50 attendees so please consider purchasing your ticket early. Books can be picked up at the store.

In Soul Winners, journalist David Clary argues that this entrepreneurial spirit has indelibly shaped evangelical ministries and their worldview. For generations, evangelical leaders have partnered with tycoons to pay for their churches, crusades, and campuses. In turn, evangelicals adopted the pro-business, anti-government values of their conservative benefactors. White evangelicals evolved into the Republican Party’s most loyal voting bloc.

Clary’s narrative approach brings to life colorful characters such as the ballplayer-turned-preacher Billy Sunday, who condemned the “godless social service nonsense” of liberal churches, and Billy Graham, who brought evangelicalism into the highest precincts of business and politics. The book offers a fresh, balanced perspective on evangelicals and the consequences of their enduring influence on American life.
