William Schultz

Divinity School

William Schultz is an Assistant Professor of American Religions in the Divinity School and the College.

He is currently finishing his first book, Evangelical Capital: The Spiritual Economy of Colorado Springs (under contract with UNC Press), which explains how the confluence of evangelical Christianity and free-market capitalism transformed the city of Colorado Springs into an epicenter of American conservatism.

His next project, The Wages of Sin: Faith, Fraud, and Religious Freedom in Modern America, uses cases of financial fraud between the 1920s and 1990s to explore how Americans have struggled with questions of religious authority and authenticity.
