Endorsements :

"God and Race in American Politics is a magisterial account of the interplay of race and religion in America from slavery to today. The account is balanced, neither an indictment nor an apologia. As Noll puts it himself, it is a story of ’spectacular liberation alongside spectacular oppression.’"—Peter L. Berger, author of The Sacred Canopy

"Noll writes well and tells an engaging story, challenging the reader to think about the connections he posits. This work will appeal to a broad array of readers interested in questions of race, religion, and politics in America’s past and present. I know of no other books that address these issues in precisely this way."—Daniel W. Stowell, author of Rebuilding Zion

"This book eloquently speaks to what is surely one of the most bedeviling issues in American history : the tragic problem of race and its complicated entanglement with religion. With his usual sharp eye for historical detail and an unflinching focus on the unforeseen ironies and paradoxes of America’s racial history, Noll tells a compelling story of sin and grace."—R. Marie Griffith, Princeton University

Mark A. Noll is the Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame. His books include The Civil War as a Theological Crisis ; America’s God : From Jonathan Edwards to Abraham Lincoln ; and The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind.
