How the Religious Right Distorts Faith and Threatens America
For much of American history, evangelicalism was aligned with progressive political causes-the abolition of slavery, universal suffrage, and public education.

Randall Balmer, an evangelical Christian and a historian of American religion, deftly combines ethnographic research, theological reflections, and historical context to examine the nature of the Religious Right today-and offers a rallying cry for liberal Christians to reclaim the noble traditions of their faith.
