Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism by Michelle Goldberg
Reviewed by Anna Godbersen
"Megachurches, writes Michelle Goldberg, are 'spiritual marketplaces' and fixtures of the 'prefab exurban lifestyle,' but they also provide a certain release from the alienation and conformity of modern society; they are 'where the weirdness comes out.' Of course, the megachurch is in some cases a place where you can buy a Big Mac or a Starbucks latte, and the members of megachurches are numerous; surely many of those numbers would like to see their brand of weirdness become the norm. As Goldberg, a Salon.com political writer, explains in her carefully argued but urgent book, Kingdom Coming, the congregations of megachurches provide foot soldiers in a movement of Christian nationalism that is changing the laws and tenets of American society."
