Reviews

"Intellectually exciting and socially important, full of energy and exceedingly generative on one of the most important issues of our time." --Jennifer Michael Hecht, author of Doubt: A History

"Mack has done what no one else has dared to: he has drawn the big picture of Christian myth and its out-workings in the social imagination and mentalities of the West down to the contemporary USA." --Stanley Stowers, Brown University

"A must for anyone attempting to understand our changing world." --Randall Reed, Appalachian State University

"This book takes its place among the best examples of cultural criticism, exposing what goes without saying in US discourse and practice and daring to imagine a saner society and safer world." --Merrill P. Miller, University of North Carolina at Pembroke

"Mack explores the Christian myth and model of empire, finding it inappropriate for the twenty-first century. By deftly painting the big picture of a common-good reconfiguration of American society, he challenges us to reimagine our future--together." --Rev. Dr. Natalie K. Houghtby-Haddon, The George Washington University Center for Excellence in Public Leadership

"Mack applies his life's work to considering how a new narrative, post-Christian myth, might restore our democratic ideals. A valuable, provocative work." --Paul Harvey, Canadian Journal of History
