Review

"Luhr's work fills a significant gap within histories of conservative Christianity and popular culture."--"Practical Matters"

"Describes a moment and a movement that has had tremendous influence in American life."--"Believer"

"Thoroughly researched and well written, this book should interest scholars of 20th-century Christianity and popular culture. . . . Highly recommended."--"Choice"

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

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
