Jack is an award-winning journalist and national reporter for the Religion News Service. He covers religion. Also politics. Usually both.
He's also the author of the book American Prophets: The Religious Roots of Progressive Politics and the Ongoing Fight for the Soul of the Country, published by HarperOne (and you can order it here!)
In addition to ThinkProgress — where he served as Senior Religion Reporter for more than 3 years before starting at RNS — his stories and analysis from all over the globe have been published in the Washington Post, Atlantic, Associated Press, National Catholic Reporter, and others. His work has also been cited or featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, New Yorker, CNN, MSNBC, and a Netflix docu-series, among others.
He earned his B.A. from Presbyterian College and his Master of Divinity from Harvard University. He plays harmonica and ukulele.
