"God Land is a courageous narrative account of the religious and political divides that threaten to rip America down its middle."--Foreword Reviews
"[Lenz's] sharp, insightful prose and deep compassion help illuminate many facets of a complicated region and its ties to Christianity. And like the people she meets, Lenz can't quite give up her stubborn longing for a big-hearted faith and an even bigger God. The result is an incisive, sober-eyed yet hopeful look at a vital aspect of American culture."--Shelf Awareness
"This work will resonate with any readers interested in understanding American landscapes where white, evangelical Christianity dominates both politics and culture."--Publishers Weekly
