PTS Student Partners with Gallup in New Book

Michael Lindsay, a PTS senior from Dallas, Texas, celebrated the release in December of his new book, Surveying the Religious Landscape, which he coauthored with George Gallup Jr.

The book, released by Morehouse Publishing, is a collection of Gallup surveys and monitors the changes in American religious life and the role of spirituality in the nation in the last fifty years. It addresses how Americans feel about a wide variety of beliefs and practices, including belief in God, attendance at church or synagogue, the religious beliefs of today’s teenagers, views about the interaction between politics and religion, life after death, and questions of ethics.

The surveys also address differences in beliefs among those of various faith perspectives, races, age groups, genders, and those in varying geographic locations.

Lindsay, who is a consultant for theology, religion, and culture to the George H. Gallup International Institute in Princeton, was interviewed on CNN and on New Jersey Network News about the book.

Lindsay and Gallup will lead a workshop at the Seminary’s Center of Continuing Education on Thursday, March 9 on the topic of their book.
