Summary
Publisher's description: A thoughtful meditation on the relationship between Christian belief and the demands of American citizenship Drawing on her personal experience as well as her knowledge of American religious history, renowned author Diana Butler Bass examines the highly controversial topic of the relationship between church and state-and between Christian identity and personal patriotism-in America. Detailing how the historic relationship between Christian identity and secular citizenship has been in conflict for centuries, Bass argues that religious nationalism is a dangerous idea in an age of terror.

She is currently directs the Project on Congregations of Intentional Practice, funded by the Eli Lilly Endowment
