Item description for God and Country: America in Red and Blue by Sheila Kennedy...
Americans increasingly think in terms of red and blue. God and Country examines the religious roots of these cultural divisions in American political life. But instead of pitting a people of faith against a secular humanist elite, God and Country helps Americans understand the religious differences that divide, appreciate the public agreements that allow us to live with religious differences, evaluate how existing democratic processes alleviate divisions, and identify ways Americans can agree to disagree.

Reviews - What do customers think about God and Country: America in Red and Blue?
A terrific book Jul 28, 2007
I found this book to be very balanced and extremely informative. A fascinating look at America's so-called "culture wars." A must read for anyone, on either side, who wonders "what's wrong with you people?!"
Impartial and Focused Jul 10, 2007
This book deserves to be on the bookshelves of everyone calling themselves politically educated. Kennedy examines the role of religion in the shaping of American politics and its effects upon the public discussion thereof with much more light than heat. It is not a polemic. It is the voice of reason in a land of shouters. It offers a solution for people of varied beliefs and backgrounds on how to get along with each other despite our differences. She offers specific methods of reaching a rational political consensus in our multicultural society. Highly recommended.
