Randall Balmer is both an evangelical Christian and a historian of American religion. Struggling to reconcile the contemporary state of evangelical faith in America with its proud tradition of progressivism, Balmer has headed to the frontlines of some of the most powerful and controversial organizations tied to the Religious Right. Deftly combining ethnographic research, theological reflections, and historical context, Balmer laments the trivialization of Christianity—and offers a rallying cry for liberal Christians to reclaim the noble traditions of their faith.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
