Our great big American God : a short history of our ever-growing deity by Matthew Paul Turner( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 232 libraries worldwide
Americans love God. We stamp God on our money, our bumper stickers, and our bodies. With a church on nearly every street, it's hard to deny our country's deep connection with the divine. Whip-smart and provocative, Turner explores the United States' vast influence on God, told through an amazing true history of faith, politics, and evangelical pyrotechnics. From Puritans to Pentecostals, from progressives to mega-pastors, Turner examines how American history and ideals transformed our perception of God. Fearless and funny, this is the definitive guide to the American experience of the Almighty -- a story so bizarre, incredible, and entertaining that it could only be made in the U.S.A. Ultimately, Turner dares to ask: Does God control the future of America -- or is it the other way around?

Every Life Has a Soundtrack. If you've ever had the opening bars of a song transport you back in time or remind you of a pivotal spiritual moment, Matthew Paul Turner's honest'and frequently hilarious'musings will strike a chord. Straightforward and amusing, Hear No Evil is Turner's "life soundtrack," a compilation of engaging personal stories about how music'and music's ability to transform'has played a key role in his spiritual life. Groove along on his journey as young evangelical Turner attends forbidden contemporary Christian concerts, moves to "Music City" Nashville, and dreams of becoming the Michael Jackson of Christian music. Cosmic and compelling, keen and funny, every page is a new encounter with the people, places, and experiences that have taught the music-editor-turned-author some new things about God, forced him out of his comfort zone, and introduced him to a fresh view of grace along the way. From the Trade Paperback edition
Churched : one kid's journey toward God despite a holy mess by Matthew Paul Turner( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
He spent his childhood trapped within the confines of countless bizarre, strict rules. And lived to tell about it. In this first-hand account, author Matthew Paul Turner shares amusing-sometimes cringe-worthy-and poignant stories about growing up in a fundamentalist household, where even well-intentioned contemporary Christian music was proclaimed to be "of the devil." Churched is a collection of stories that detail an American boy's experiences growing up in a culture where men weren't allowed let their hair grow to touch their ears ("an abomination!"), women wouldn't have been caught dead in a pair of pants (unless swimming), and the pastor couldn't preach a sermon without a healthy dose of hellfire and brimstone. Matthew grapples with the absurdity of a Sunday School Barbie burning, the passionate annual boxing match between the pastor and Satan, and the holiness of being baptized a fifth time-while growing into a young man who, amidst the chaotic mess of religion, falls in love with Jesus
