Describes how America changed the idea of God through an examination of the history of faith, politics, and Christian religions , from the Puritans to progressives and mega-churches.
Statistics that suggest a shrinking Christian population make media headlines, yet it's impossible to deny America's deep connection with Christianity. In this observant expose, Matthew Paul Turner demonstrates that just as Americans are trying to squeeze into skinny jeans and still enjoy our buckets of Kentucky fried chicken, we're also trying to squeeze God into the areas of our lives that are most convenient for us--so, basically, everywhere. God is, Turner argues, our greatest export.
In the vein of David Sedaris and Anne Lamott, this provocative, hilarious, and thought-provoking book explores how specific American ideas and historical events have altered our perception of God. We try to manipulate this God to fit our culture's understanding of the Bible, life and death, sex, politics, family, and more. But in our quest to follow our own "big" God, we miss his bigger picture for our lives, and a true, fulfilling understanding of God Himself. Along the way, Turner examines and answers the ultimate question: Does God really control the future of America--or is it the other way around?
