What's God Got to Do with America?
Turn on a cable news show or pick up a news magazine, and you get the impression that the United States of America is really the Divided States of America, a country politically and ideologically at odds, with one side staring down the other across an unbridgeable chasm.
According to Dr. Richard Land, we need a new way of thinking about ourselves. The differences that divide us are real, he argues, but we can still find common ground. Our differences do not make it impossible to find constructive ways to discuss the role of God and religion in America's public agenda. In this insightful and timely book, Dr. Land shows the way.
"One of the clearest, most tightly argued, and informative accounts of religion in the public square today. . . ." Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State
"A lucid statement of a reasonable position on the place of religion in public life. While the author writes from a commmitted, evangelical standpoint, his views on church/state relations will be plausible to many who do not share his religious commitment." Michael Novak, American Enterprise Institute
