BEVERLY HILLS, C.A.: Author Randall Balmer to speak on role of 'Religious Right' -- Noted author, professor and lecturer Dr. Randall Balmer will speak about his new book, "Thy Kingdom Come: How the Religious Right Distorts the Faith and Threatens America," at All Saints' Church in Beverly Hills on July 16 at 10:19 am (between the 9:00 and 11:15 am services.)
Balmer is the Ann Whitney Olin Professor of American Religion at Barnard College, Columbia University, in New York City. His book is a thoroughgoing critique of the Religious Right, but one written from the perspective of an evangelical believer. The first line reads: "I write as a jilted lover." He has published widely both in academic and scholarly journals and in the popular press. He is editor-at-large for Christianity Today, and his commentaries on religion in America have appeared in newspapers across the country.
