So I’m a religion nerd from way back and one of my very favorite topics is the differences between Christian denominations. (It’s a neat party trick. In my mind. Others may disagree…) The Useful Charts channel has been doing an excellent series on the family tree of Christian denominations. The most recent episode is about the churches coming out of the Second Great Awakening, which are some of the most fascinating groups precisely because they were willing to throw traditional theology out the window and start from scratch. Next time he will take up the Holiness movement, the Third Great Awakening, and Pentecostalism—which is the tradition in which I grew up. So fun!
