Editorial Reviews

Review

Dreaming of Eden is a fascinating story about stories – how elemental religious narratives about human nature and lost innocence shape our politics and culture in a digital age. Rather than relying on ancient texts or church doctrine, Thistlethwaite explains how Americans today are creating a new ‘public theology’ to help find meaning in their lives and make decisions about complex political issues in a world of rapid-fire information and popular culture. Anyone interested in the intersection of religion, politics, and media will find much ‘wired wisdom’ in her new book.”--John D. Podesta, President and CEO of the Center for American Progress

“This book is a powerful and prophetic work of public theology for our idolatrous times.  The myth of American innocence is not only childish – it also is dangerous!”--Cornel West, Princeton University; author of Race Matters and Keeping Faith: Philosophy and Race in America

"The topic of Dreaming of Eden is important, and the author is a well-known theologian who has helped readers think through religio-political issues for some time. . . . The book's solid cultural contribution is the reread of the mythology of Eden through a contemporary media lens and the juxtaposition of political and social events with theological insights and media. . . . Summing up: Recommended." --CHOICE
