One Nation Under God?

THE REVIEWS ARE in for The Holy Vote: The Politics of Faith in America, the new book by Ray Suarez that examines the role of religion in American politics and foreign policy. I read the Washington Post review on Sunday in Book World, and you can read if for yourself here.

The publisher summarizes the book as follows:

the book 'examines the way Americans worship, how organized religion and politics intersect in America, and how this powerful collision is transforming the current and future American mind-set Not since the Civil War has the United States been so polarized -- politically and ideologically. But at the very heart of this fracture is a fascinating rig and paradoxical marriage between our country’s politics and religions.'

I welcome any comments from those who may have read the book already.

Quite a good book. Although he obviously comes down on the 'separation of church and state' side of the arguement, he presents the material in a way that allows you to make some judgements on yoru own. So much better than the Ann Coulter style -- cramming it down your throat.
