God's Own Country

God's Own Country: Power and the Religious Right in the USA. A new book by Stephen Bates.

Only published in the UK for now, though there would have been time to bring it out in the U.S. of A. before the election. You can get it from Amazon UK, though.

Hat tip to Simon Sarmiento at Thinking Anglicans.

42 days.

Brought to you by your daily ¡Si, se puede!

Activated till the polls close on November 4.

Sounds like a good book.

I am enjoying this right now.

And I will be most interested to attend this event next week.

Sounds interesting! Do you read NETWORK's newsletter or website? They always have interesting citizen/conscience/social justice stuff. It's Catholic but I just recommended it to an ecumenical group of campus ministers who didn't know about it.

Let us know on blog about the Hubbard et al. event and what you get from it

Oh thanks for the heads up on this. I'll try to find out when the US one comes out and get a review copy and do a piece on it. Sounds like a very important book. :)

Oh I will keep you informed, trust me.

This is not your ordinary diocese.

I do not expect to be told to vote one way or another- I hope to hear some actual wisdom... so little of that going around these days.
