Christine Wicker, "The Fall of the Evangelical Nation: The Surprising Crisis Inside the Church"
HarperOne | 2008 | ISBN: 0061117161 | 240 pages | PDF | 1 MB
"Clear-eyed and probing, Wicker’s book will make you reassess conventional wisdom about faith and politics. It is essential reading for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the role religion plays in our national life." -- Kevin Merida, author of "Supreme Discomfort" and an associate editor at the Washington Post
"Combining the style of a journalist with the analytical perspective of a religiously-sympathetic sociologist, Wicker makes a surprising, important, and persuasive case." -- Marcus Borg, author of Jesus: Uncovering the Life, Teachings, and Relevance of a Religious Revolutionary
"Finally a book that brings it all together, statistics and stories, devastating truth and compassionate hope, investigative reporting and home-spun wisdom. Christine Wicker holds up a mirror for the "Institutional Church" and reveals the nip-and-tuck tricks that have fooled us for the last few decades." -- Spencer Burke, Creator of TheOOZE.com and Author of "A Heretic's Guide To Eternity"
"Thoughtful Christian leaders, seeing the opportunities in the shifting religious scene can use Wicker’s work as a wake-up call and a road map. My gut tells me Wicker’s research and analysis is right." -- Todd Hunter, President of Alpha USA
"Wicker combines hard earned fundamentalist insider credentials with journalistic incisiveness to point out that the emperor (formerly known as evangelicalism) has no political clothes (or at least is missing his pants)." -- Jim Henderson, Creator of Off The Map and Author of Jim and Casper Go To Church
"With careful analysis, Wicker reveals the spiritual downturn in the Religious Right, how it has lost its hold over contemporary America and what hope that offers the rest of us." -- Diana Butler Bass, author of Christianity for the Rest of Us
