Kathleen Kennedy Townsend on the Campbell Conversations

This year’s presidential election has brought up a host of perplexing questions about the relationship between religion and politics, and the importance of a candidate’s faith. In this week’s edition of the Campbell Conversations, Grant Reeher probes those questions with Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, the eldest child of Robert and Ethel Kennedy.

Kennedy Townsend was Maryland’s first female lieutenant governor and is the author of Failing America’s Faithful:  How Today’s Churches Are Mixing God with Politics and Losing Their Way.
