The Politics of a Word in Amer­ica

The New York Review of Books - - Contents - Matthew Bow­man

“Charts the long his­tory of Chris­tian po­lit­i­cal rhetoric in the United States... Most strik­ing for our cur­rent po­lit­i­cal mo­ment may be Bow­man’s at­ten­tion to the ways the po­lit­i­cally pow­er­ful have used Chris­tian­ity to claim a di­vine right to gov­ern, de­rived—as they saw it—from the su­pe­ri­or­ity of a racial­ized white Chris­tian cul­tural her­itage.”
