"A valuable addition to our understanding of religion's role in American politics broadly, not just the 2008 presidential election."Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion
"This fine new book offers a thorough and timely analysis of the role of religion in the 2008 presidential election. It also contextualizes religion's role in this history-making election, illustrating in many ways that the more things change, the more they truly do stay the same: religious traditionalists remained solidly Republican despite increased efforts on the part of the Democrats to reach out to people of faith. This book will be of interest to anyone interested in religion and politics political parties, or elections in the United States."
