How religion is changing in North America

Religion in North America has always been highly dynamic, and is now even more so, says Luis Lugo, director of the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. Today, Protestantism is a minority religion, making up about 48 percent of the nation's religious population. At the same time, 20 percent of Americans don't identify with any religious tradition. Lugo and Daniel O. Aleshire, executive director of the Association of Theological Schools, a member organization of more than 250 schools of theology in North America, discussed the changing landscape of religion in North America and the implications for theological education in an hour-long video interview archived on vimeo by the Association.
