Thy Kingdom Come: An Evangelical’s Lament by Randall Balmer. Nonfiction-religion/politics. 206 pages. Library. This book is subtitled How the Religious Right Distorts the Faith and Threatens America. It describes the relationship between the religious right and the Republican party including evidence that the evangelicals were not involved in the abortion fight immediately after Roe v Wade and how the Evangelicals are ignoring what the Bible shows as Jesus’ main concern, helping the poor and less fortunate, and focusing on issues of homosexuality and abortion that are hardly mentioned. A very interesting read.
