In God's Country Summary

In God's Country: Travels in Bible Belt, USA by Douglas Kennedy

Though much has been written about the political implications of the religious revival which has engulfed America in recent years, a question remains unanswered: what pushes its people into 'declaring for Jesus'?

Douglas Kennedy spent a long hot summer cruising through that expanse of the American South known as 'The Bible Belt' exploring that question. In a remarkable journey into one of the strangest corners of the United States, Kennedy finds himself spending time in Miami with a one-time member of the Mafia turned charismatic preacher, discovering Christian heavy metal music in Nashville, and visiting Death Row in South Carolina with an evangelist who ministers to the condemned.

Repeatedly discovering the extraordinary within the ordinary, IN GOD'S COUNTRY is a profound, yet brilliantly entertaining exploration of life in late twentieth century America.

A fascinating insight into both a country and Christianity * SUNDAY TIMES *
It took me closer to the saccharine yearnings of American religiousity than anything I have read * THE DAILY TELEGRAPH *
His book is decent, compassionate and funny. It needed to be written, and it certainly needs to be read * THE SUNDAY PRESS *
