“A diligent and informative . . . exploration of the ways mainstream evangelicals’ attitudes toward popular culture have evolved in the past forty years.”
(Maud Newton Bookforum 2009-06-01)

(Practical Matters 2010-07-02)

“Describes a moment and a movement that has had tremendous influence in American life.”
(Believer 2010-07-06)

“Thoroughly researched and well written, this book should interest scholars of 20th-century Christianity and popular culture. . . . Highly recommended.”
(Choice 2010-07-08)

From the Inside Flap

"Down at the local God-mall there's a whole lot of shaking going on, and Eileen Luhr explains why we should all take notice. This is a highly original, witty, at times mind-boggling exploration of the strange interfaces between youth culture and suburban evangelicalism." —Mike Davis, author of In Praise of Barbarians
