An Eighth Day View:
In this evenhanded, reflective series of New Yorker-style profiles, Randall Balmer takes the reader on a cross-country exploration of the evangelical subculture in America. Throughout, Balmer fills in the theological and historical background, creating in effect a capsule history of evangelicalism. Through the eyes of the people Balmer meets, we are able to see into the heart of American evangelicalism and arrive at a more accurate, balanced portrait of this tradition.
For this edition, Balmer has added two new chapters--one offering a fascinating profile of disgraced TV evangelist Jimmy Swaggart, and the other a behind-the-scenes portrait of a Christian rock band on tour.
