In this episode, we dive into the world of thoughtful conservatism and its intersection with religion and liberty with our guest, Mark David Hall, PhD. Mark David Hall is Herbert Hoover Distinguished Professor of Politics and Faculty Fellow in the William Penn Honors Program at George Fox University.
He is a leading scholar on the relationship between religion and American politics, and has authored numerous books on the subject, including “Roger Sherman and the Creation of the American Republic” and “Did America Have a Christian Founding? Separating Modern Myth from Historical Truth.”
In this episode, Dr. Smith and Dr. Hall discuss the concept of thoughtful conservatism and its role in shaping American politics. They explore how thoughtful conservatism, with its emphasis on limited government and individual liberty, can coexist with religious beliefs and values.
The conversation delves into the founding fathers and their views on religion, the Constitution, and the role of government in American society. Dr. Hall also gives us a sneak peek into his upcoming book, “Proclaim Liberty Throughout all the Land,” which explores the history of religious liberty in America and how it has shaped our nation. Join us for a thought-provoking and informative discussion on the intersection of conservatism, religion, and liberty in America on this episode of the Beyond Policy Podcast with Dr. Oran P. Smith and guest Mark David Hall, PhD.
