This groundbreaking book from Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Frances FitzGerald is the first to tell the powerful, dramatic story of the Evangelical movement in America - from the Puritan era to the 2016 presidential election. Evangelicals have, in many ways, defined the nation. They have shaped our culture and our politics. Frances FitzGerald's narrative of this distinctively American movement is a major work of history, piecing together the centuries-long story for the first time.

The narrator is monotone and harder to listen to at some points, but the biography of evangelicalism was fascinating. Anyone who cares about the current situation and/or future of evangelicalism would benefit greatly from this thorough and journalistic look at the past.

In Wealth, Poverty, and Politics, Thomas Sowell, one of the foremost conservative public intellectuals in the country, argues that political and ideological struggles have led to dangerous confusion about income inequality in America. Pundits and politically motivated economists trumpet ambiguous statistics and sensational theories while ignoring the true determinant of income inequality: the production of wealth.

I appreciated the approach and content of this book. It certainly gave me an expanded perspective, and the subject matter is timely (especially for western culture).
