The Reconnect 5-24-17 | Interview on Trump visit to Israel | Rise of Independent Network Charismatic Christianity

What was the response inside Israel to President Trump’s visit? What were the reactions to the President’s conversation with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, is there renewed hope of negotiated peace? We find out with our friend Jonathan Bernis. He serves as President and CEO of Jewish Voice Ministries International.

There was important action yesterday on the life front: in the state of Maine, legislators rejected a physician-assisted suicide bill that would have allowed doctors to prescribe lethal doses of medication to patients who want to die.

Churches across America are dying and yet there is at the same time a new growing movement of Christianity outside the traditional church structures. Our guest, Biola University professor of sociology Brad Christerson has studied this new movement, calling it Independent Network Charismatic Christianity or ‘INC Christianity’. We explore with him what he’s found about this new movement and what that means for the broader future of Christianity.
