Product Description

Evangelical Christians comprise roughly a fourth of the U.S. population - over 60 million Americans who say they are "born again" and experience a daily personal relationship with God. They live in every part of the country and are engaged in every walk of life. Their personal faith and vision for America is shaped by an understanding of the Bible as God's inerrant word. They earnestly believe that having a personal faith in Jesus Christ is humankind's only hope of salvation and are committed to what they consider to be a divine mandate to win the world to Christ and bring biblical values to bear in what they see as an increasingly secular and hedonistic society.
With panoramic sweep and intimate narrative detail, award-winning religion journalist and onetime fundamentalist Jeffery L. Sheler takes readers to the places where today's evangelicals live, work, and worship, to meet them firsthand and discover how their unique brand of Christian faith shapes their lives. Through poignant personal stories presented in a riveting style, Believers paints an in-depth portrait of a people who believe in the power of the gospel to transform lives, and the pursuit of a vision for a just and righteous America.
