Thomas Lecaque teaches Religious History at Grand View University in Iowa. He recently authored an article in the Washington Post that caught our attention, entitled “The Apocalyptic Myth that Explains Evangelical Support for Trump.”

You can find the article here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2019/11/26/apocalyptic-myth-that-helps-explain-evangelical-support-trump/

I had a blast talking with him, and I hope you enjoy listening along with us.

  1. He’s right in part, but the folks using this rhetoric about Trump are referencing modern Dispensationalism. In that scheme the last world leader is the Antichrist and there’s ultimately no stopping him- but his reign can be postponed, and that is Trumps role. Shameless plug – discussed a bit in my book “Law and Theology,” now out with Fortress Press.
