Please join us for a reception and lecture with Professor Emeritus David L. Holmes on the topic of Religion and the Presidents of Our Time.

Morality, values and faith play integral roles in American politics. Beginning with Dwight Eisenhower's background in the Jehovah's Witnesses, Richard Nixon's secret Unitarianism and Bill Clinton's Saturday night/Sunday morning personae, Professor Holmes will conclude by discussing the religious faith of Donald J. Trump, the nation's newly inaugurated president.

A church historian who received his Ph.D. from Princeton University, Holmes has won numerous teaching awards. He wrote bestselling Faiths of the Founding Fathers and the acclaimed Faiths of the Postwar Presidents. He began his esteemed career at the College in 1965 and retired as Walter G.
