The Hidden Revival
Rev. Dr. Earl Trent,
There is a religious revival taking place in America. Untracked and unreported it has already spread across this country popping up in the most unlikely of places. It has been unreported because it is not a Christian, Jewish, nor Islamic revival. Outside of the three Abrahamic religions the press, both mainstream and alternative, have only a thin knowledge of other religions. It is gone almost unnoticed because serious discussion of religion is no longer part of our public discourse and public knowledge of religion is abysmally low.
That is not to say that the evidence of this revival has not been noticed. A significant shift in American culture has indeed been noted, studied and labelled. In November, the Oxford Dictionaries announced that “post-truth” was the 2016 word of the year.
