Consumerism, Pragmatism & the Triumph of the Therapeutic

Series: Water & Blood – Published: Sunday, 31 May 2015

Hosted by Christian Smith Michael Horton

Many churches in our day attempt to make their services relevant and entertaining in order to attract people in the marketplace of competing options. The focus often centers on practical lessons designed to help us cope with life’s problems. But what are the historic roots of this particular approach to ministry? Michael Horton discusses these issues and more with Notre Dame sociologist Christian Smith. (Originally aired Dec. 26, 2010).
