[Cross-posted from New Books in Politics] Americans are simultaneously one of the most religious people on earth and prone to conflict and war. Ray Haberski is interested in how this paradox has shaped the nation’s civil religion. His book, God and War: American Civil Religion Since 1945 (Rutgers University Press, 2012), examines how three contemporary wars have shaped Americans understanding of God and their relationship to the Almighty. This is a book that asks big questions and listens to the ideas of big thinkers. Listen to the interview, buy the book, and then read it.
