Molly WorthenLuhrmann is hardly the first to interpret religious feeling through the lens of psychology. This line of analysis goes back to William James and the German theologian Friedrich Schleiermacher, and today the scientific study of prayer is a growing field. Yet When God Talks Back is remarkable for combining creative psychological analysis with a commitment to understanding evangelicals not merely as a scholar's specimens, but on their own terms. The result is the most insightful study of evangelical religion in many years.
