Our great big American God : a short history of our ever-growing deity by Matthew Paul Turner( Book )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 300 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?
