Progressive faith and politics

For decades, the political influence of faith has been seen in the might and the dominance of the Religious Right.  

A new book from Religion News Service national reporter Jack Jenkins called "American Prophets: The Religious Roots of Progressive Politics and the Ongoing Fight for the Soul of the Country," charts the rise of the so-called Religious Left.  

Beliefs host Bill Baker and producer Jay Woodward spoke with Jenkins about his new book and the emergence of a powerful new political identity.
