Thy Kingdom Come: How the Religious Right Distorts the Faith and Threatens America: An Evangelical's Lament Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The distinguished author of Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory returns with a searing examination of a new generation of evangelical leaders who have hijacked the Christian faith on behalf of the Republican Party. 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.

Synopsis:

Examines the involvement of evangelical Christianity in modern-day American partisan politics, criticizing the new generation of religious leaders who have corrupted the Christian faith on behalf of the Republican Party.
