The Jesus Machine
Edited on Tue Mar-06-07 11:53 AM by IanDB1
Dan Gilgoff, a senior editor at US News & World Report, has a new book entitled The Jesus Machine; How James Dobson, Focus on the Family, and Evangelical America Are Winning the Culture War.

Barnes & Noble: http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?z=y&EAN=9780312357900&itm=1

Gilgoff was interviewed yesterday on NPRs Fresh Air. You can hear the interview for yourself here.

The book and the interview are both worth your time. Gilgoffs point is that Dobson is the most powerful evangelical in America and to a large extent deserves credit for the recent resurgence of the religious right, the election of President Bush, and the success of the values agenda in states across the country. Not that this is news, but Gilgoffs exhaustive research is incredibly valuable.
