Randall Balmer talked about his book, Redeemer: The Life of Jimmy Carter, in which he examines the role that religion played in the election and defeat of former President Jimmy Carter. In his book, the author reports that President Carter’s progressive evangelicalism was a factor in his winning the 1976 presidential election. However, he also says the same evangelical population who supported the 39th President’s first campaign deserted him four years later in favor of Ronald Reagan. Randall Balmer spoke at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum in Atlanta, Georgia. close
