LLUC Sabbath Seminars June 15: Red Dynamite Chapters 4 & 5

This Saturday, June 15, the Loma Linda University Church Sabbath Seminars continues discussion of Red Dynamite with John Testerman and Bill Shull.

In Chapter 4, Christian anticommunism unfolds in a context highlighted by widespread labor
struggle, political polarization, and the rise of Fascism on a global scale. Jews are blamed for
Marxism and Darwinism. In Chapter 5, the early years of the Cold War see conservative Christian
leadership passed to a new generation who prominently included Baptist firebrand preacher John R. Rice, and “scientific” creationists/global diluvialists Morris and Whitcomb.
