By Gene House on October 18, 2009
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Shields first book is both informative and objective. This latter quality is all too often missing from the dialogue about religious conservatives and those who oppose them. Admittedly a conservative Christian himself, Shields' rigorous scholarship allows him to achieve an unemotional, indepth look into the Christian Right and the key issues with which it occupies itself -- abortion; evolution; Christianity in public schools; politics and religion; organizing and debating techniques employed by the Right and the Left, and more.

The details he reveals and the insights he offers regarding the inner workings and tactics of those on both sides of the issues are often surprising and always enlightening. This first book is definitely worth reading and it holds out the promise of increasingly original and stimulating writings as Mr. Shields, whose career is only in its first few years, continues to grow in wisdom and the ability to share that wisdom with a broad and diversified audience. How refreshing it is to have a new voice in this chaotic arena, a voice that is clear and fair minded, dedicated to an accurate portrayal of an explosive and generally misunderstood aspect of American life; politics and religion!
