“Bad Faith is the essential reader for all who want to know how America was pushed to the brink and how the evangelical church was led off a cliff.”

Bishop Michael Curry

“Balmer’s highly engaging and provocative book pulls back the curtain to reveal how race, not abortion, was the key issue in the birth of what has become a powerful and disturbing alliance.”

Elaine Pagels

“This brilliant, readable detective story demonstrates that the Religious Right, far from speaking for all evangelicals, has masked its recent—and deviant—origin among groups advocating white supremacy.”

Jemar Tisby

“Fantastic. . . . Before you read another headline or write another social media post about religion, race, or politics, read this book.”
