Product Description

A popular look at the separation of church and state: what it is, what it isn't, and why it matters for the future of religion in America.

Everywhere, it seems, the question is being raised, "What's God got to do with America?" According to Richard Land, both sides of the worldview wars, Liberals and Conservatives, are fundamentally missing the mark. "The country needs a new way to think about this question," says Dr. Land. "When neither side is interested in listening to the other, but each side responds by shouting so loudly that their opponents either can't or won't listen, you generate a lot of heat, but very little light. And while the shouting match may make good media, the truth is that underlying this debate are critical assumptions that will radically shape the future of this country for good or for ill. It's high time we realize what they are and learn how to respond in ways that will cut through our current cultural impasse."

Publisher's Description

What's God Got to Do with America?

Turn on a cable news show or pick up a news magazine, and you get the impression that the United States of America is really the Divided States of America, a country politically and ideologically at odds, with one side staring down the other across an unbridgeable chasm.

According to Dr. Richard Land, we need a new way of thinking about ourselves. The differences that divide us are real, he argues, but we can still find common ground. Our differences do not make it impossible to find constructive ways to discuss the role of God and religion in America's public agenda. In this insightful and timely book, Dr. Land shows the way.

"One of the clearest, most tightly argued, and informative accounts of religion in the public square today. . . ." ⷕMadeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State

"A lucid statement of a reasonable position on the place of religion in public life. While the author writes from a commmitted, evangelical standpoint, his views on church/state relations will be plausible to many who do not share his religious commitment." ⷕMichael Novak, American Enterprise Institute

Author Bio

Richard Land, Princeton and Oxford educated, has served as president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission since 1988. In 2005, Land was featured in Time magazine as one of "The 25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America."
