Philip Jenkins on "Fertility, Climate Change, and the Future of Faith"
The world's religions are facing enormous challenges. On the one side, many countries are entering an era of decreasing population growth. On the other side, anxieties about climate changes are increasing. In America, these concerns have come together: global climate change is increasingly being given as a reason to reduce our population size. How should Christianity and other major religions respond to these pressures?
On April 21st, 2022, Baylor in Washington was pleased to host historian Dr. Philip Jenkins for a conversation drawing upon on his two latest books to evaluate how climate changes have led to social upheavals and mass migration--and how religions have adjusted to shifts in fertility rates.
