Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Holy Vote examines the way Americans worship, how organized religion and politics intersect in America, and how this powerful collision is transforming the current and future American mind-set.

Not since the Civil War has the United States been so polarized — politically and ideologically. But at the very heart of this fracture is a fascinating rig and paradoxical marriage between our country’s politics and religions.

Over the past several election cycles, the differences between so-called "Red America" — conservative, church-affiliated, suburban, and rural — and "Blue America" — urban, secular, and socially liberal — have hardened. Although on most days, these two big American mainstreams move on parallel tracks, they increasingly find themselves head to head, ready to fight at the slightest offense. They react to new stories in different ways. They react to government power in different ways. They certainly vote in different ways.

With The Holy Vote, Ray Suarez explores the advent of this polarization and how it is profoundly changing the way in which we live our lives. With hands-on reporting, Suarez explores the attitudes and beliefs of the people behind the voting numbers, the places in which these new beliefs are being born, and how the political divide is manifesting itself across the country. The reader will come to a greater understanding of how Americans believe, and how this belief structure fuels the debates that dominate the issues on our evening news.

Review:

"Ray Suarez is the kind of journalist better known for getting others to speak than for speaking out himself. It thus comes as no surprise that he begins his book on religion and politics by quoting liberally from people across the political spectrum: Here is David Saperstein, a liberal rabbi, worrying about Christian exclusionism; there is Jack Graham, a Dallas-area Baptist preacher, all but endorsing...

Review:

"Suarez shares his personal religious experiences as an urban liberal Catholic and laments the demise of religious tolerance in current political discourse....The book reads easily and is sure to provoke lively discussion." Library Journal

Synopsis:

In the tradition of the bestselling God's Politics comes a book which examines how the faithful worship and how the new dialogue between religion and voters has forever altered American politics.
