Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 8/28/2013

    " Insightful, intelligent analysis of how the religious right grew in power and how their growth in power is a danger to both the country and people of faith. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat Ramsey | 6/10/2013

    " The title alone creates defensiveness. This is a harsh critique of the Religious Right and an examination of many controversial issues. No matter you stance, his examinations are worth a read. This is not his most recent work, but issues in it have not been exhausted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 1/9/2013

    " Kind of confusing language and could get dull at times, but gave a great perspective on the tangle of politics and religion from an author who is also an evangelical. Helped someone who is religious to see beyond the sway of the religious right. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corey | 8/25/2012

    " I enjoyed this. He assulted my faith a bit but thats good for you. I think he did a good job of putting together what is wrong with american christianity. In my opinion lots of christians dont have a handle on the scriptures and end up like sheep politically but not spiritually. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Parkins | 7/31/2009

    " Excellent book by the rarest of breeds, an evangelical who happens to be a liberal Demoract. Very even handed on most topics including his treatment of abortion and gay marriage. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan Olson | 12/15/2008

    " A very heartfelt book, wonderfully written. This book exposes the enormous danger inherent in the Religious and Republican Right that threatens the integrity of our nation "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosie McKinney | 11/22/2008

    " Very informative. Folks need to read this so that they become aware of the behavior patterns of the Religious Right and its underpinnings to the American culture. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard Harden | 9/18/2008

    " This book was (and still is) timely. The points Balmer makes about the distortions of the Religious Right upon both Christianity and US politics are important points to consider whether one agrees fully with them or not. However, some of the points I feel could have been better supported. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donald Fenestre | 6/19/2007

    " A serious indictment of the Religious Right. Not to be overlooked by anyone, religious or otherwise, concerned about America's compromised capacity for social justice, both domestically and globally. Balmer does a great service to the much maligned reputation of American Evangelicals. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chantee | 2/26/2007

    " This book is a pretty fast read and it does a good job of unmasking the religious right for what it really is. As a person of faith, I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has time since it truly separates the proverbial wheat from the chaff. "
