Editorial Reviews

Review

“A must-read for anyone interested not only in why religion has become more important in elections, but also in how. . . . It does not offer sweeping generalizations. . . . But it is extremely valuable for anyone trying to figure out where the United States is headed.”—Political Science Quarterly
(Political Science Quarterly 2010-04-02)

“Green . . . takes a detailed look at the poll results from recent presidential elections and overturns a number of preconceptions about the role religion plays. . . . What Green’s detailed statistical analysis shows is that religion does indeed matter, but in ways that we have only begun to fathom. Equipped with Green’s more nuanced appreciation of religion’s role in voting preferences, we can map out new features in the political landscape. . . . In a context in which secular pollsters too often set the agenda for political analysis, Green’s fascinating and challenging book offers an important corrective.”—Christian Century Magazine
(Christian Century Magazine 2010-04-02)

“Highly recommended.”—Choice
(Choice 2010-04-02)

“This new book, built on detailed public opinion polls, will cement Green’s position as our preeminent student of the relationship between religion and American politics.”—Los Angeles Times
(Los Angeles Times 2010-04-02)

“No one—absolutely no one—understands the religious and political landscape in American better than John Green. He deftly cuts through the confusion, bombast, anger, and fear that have surrounded our recent elections to tell a clear and compelling story about how we arrived at this point. Anyone who seeks to understand contemporary American politics needs this book.”—Amy Sullivan, contributing editor, The Washington Monthly
(Amy Sullivan 2010-04-02)

“From issues in religion gaps to gender, age, and activism influences, this is a ‘must’ for any library seeking to explore connections between religion and American political processes.”—Midwest Book Review
(Midwest Book Review 2010-07-16)
