The Theology of Ted Cruz

By John Fea

16536540067_c42bf9085a_nTed Cruz was raised in an evangelical subculture. He grew up studying the Bible and was taught to integrate faith and learning at Second Baptist School in Houston.

On the one hand, this is clearly labeled an opinion piece and is within the bounds of evangelical discussion (though the author’s past advocacy for Obama and affiliation with the liberal Sojourners should have been noted). On the other, my friends at CT could have gotten readers a lot closer to what Cruz actually believes by taking the time to interview him rather than present those beliefs through John Fea’s filter. I hope we don’t have to wait too long for similar opinion pieces on the other candidates. It would be interesting to see who CT is supporting this election cycle. Apparently a pro-life, constitutional conservative who is a Christian didn’t make the cut.
