His Own Received Him Not: Jimmy Carter, First Evangelical President

9 Oct

Randall Balmer is a historian of American religion, and especially of evangelicalism. (Our paths have crossed a few times, although there is no reason for him to remember me.) His latest book is a biography of Jimmy Carter.

At Religion Dispatches, you can find an enlightening interview with Balmer about his book on Carter: His Own Received Him Not: Jimmy Carter, First Evangelical President | Religion Dispatches.

    I love Balmer’s work on evangelical America. Having grown up evangelical himself he knows it from the inside. I’ll have to add this to my far too lengthy reading list.
