UTGar5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent--Should make any committed believer thinkOctober 17, 2014UTGarQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Don't let the author's politics get in the way of an excellent message. Boyd doesn't hide where his political leanings lie. He does an effective job--my opinion--of making and supporting his points and perspective. This may challenge how many of us think things "ought to be " ordered and prioritized. Is that necessarily a bad thing?
Daniel Markham5 Stars Out Of 5The premise is agreeable, if not the politics.September 23, 2012Daniel MarkhamQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The premise of this book was totally agreeable to me, even if I do not subscribe to the author's politics. This book gave me what I was looking for, a mandate for keeping politics out of the church and in the secular political realm. The church is fast turning into a political action committee. Patriotism seems to be the neo-orthodoxy. Patriotic ferver and politics have quickly replaced the great commandment and the great commission. I highly recommend this book to those who have not yet been sucked into the political malestrom in the church. This book is an early warning device, if it is not already to late.

Steven Hernandez5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent-an absolute must read for church leadersMarch 18, 2011Steven HernandezQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Myth of a Christian Nation is the most important book I've read in a long time. As a fundamentalist Evangelical Christian I am frequently confronted by people in the public, both frustrated Christians and non-Christians, who often comment on how far away the practices and beliefs of many Evangelical Christians have drifted and eroded away from the teachings of our Lord and Savior. American Christianity has become politicized, and often simply co-opted as a veneer to coat over non-Christian civil agendas. The book calls for a return to scripture as taught by Christ and warns against what happens when people allow themselves to believe they are being good Christians, even when they are not seeking to be Christ-like.
Louise FauveauxParis, FranceAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5June 22, 2010Louise FauveauxParis, FranceAge: 55-65Gender: femaleI read this book several years ago and was amazed that an American, living in the USA, was able to see things so clearly. I left the USA 35 years ago to share the Gospel here in Europe and had come to the conclusion that too many Americans are Americans first and then Christians. People become Christians, nations do not. When I read the book I knew nothing of the Emerging Churches. Since then I have read a lot and have been distressed by some of their teaching. I hope Mr. Boyd does not adhere to any of their heresies. ON the subject of a Christian nation, though, I feel he has understood Scripture. I too have bought several copies of the book and shared them with others.
