This book starts with the fact that whites and especially those who identify as white Christians are rapidly loosing their majority status in the United States. A fact that is difficult or impossible to refute no matter how hard some people try to do so. He then lays out the historical path that led us to this point. And along that path he points out key events, movements or moments in time where white Christians shot themselves in the foot by digging into an untenable position or took actions that in the long run, will simply make this transition more difficult for everyone, especially themselves. Throughout the book he relays quotes and comments by people with supposed Christian values that are, frankly, disturbingly bigoted at best, appallingly bigoted at worst and quite frankly, make me embarrassed for those who said them and for the race that we share.
So, no new facts, but some fresh antidotes I had not read before and a very interesting discussion. I recommend this book for those who like to understand "how we got here."

Great recent history especially last 40 years of religion's role in politics and how we view our country. Very thought provoking, especially on the question of where to we go from here.
