Michael Lindsay of Rice University recently published Faith in the Halls of Power with Oxford University Press. I’m reviewing the book for the Journal of Law and Religion. Having read many volumes analyzing the role and culture of evangelicals in the United States, it would take a lot to impress me, but Lindsay delivers.
He interviewed nearly 400 influential evangelicals and portrays the reality of elite evangelical culture far better than anyone else I’ve seen. Any reporter on religion in America should be required to read this book. I cannot recommend it highly enough. If you want to get inside the heads of evangelicals making headway in politics, the arts, universities, entertainment, and business, Faith in the Halls of Power is the new standard text.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
