The Great Evangelical Inflation?

John Dickerson says there are fewer Evangelicals than we think.
The Great Evangelical Inflation?

Hey friends, catch this interview of John Dickerson (author of The Great Evangelical Recession), who joins Darrell Bock to discuss his recent work.

Start at 6:30, where Bock asks John to unpack his concept of "inflation" as a key concept in understanding contemporary American Evangelicalism. (Thanks to John for sending the video our way.)

Then, please respond in the comments. I'm interested in two things: First, do you see local evidence of "inflation"? And second, does this matter for pastoral practice?
