American Christian fundamentalism is older than the country itself, and the marriage between fundamentalism and right-wing politics is more than a century old. This audiobook by Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner Frances Fitzgerald (FIRE IN THE LAKE) explores the movement's history, showing that it is far from a recent phenomenon. Jacques Roy offers a capable, even reading. He is especially effective at breaking down the author's sometimes complicated sentences into segments that are easy for listeners to follow. The audiobook is straightforward during the historical segments, but the discussions of theological issues--such as nineteenth-century Presbyterianism or premillennialism--are dense and require careful listening. The author doesn't reintroduce major figures, so if listeners forget who some are, they might miss out on parts of the discussion. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2017]
