The Divided States of America: What Liberals and Conservatives Get Wrong about Faith and Politics

​According to Dr. Richard Land, both sides of America's culture wars are getting it wrong. God has much more to do with America than the Liberal Left would have us believe. But the Conservative Right misses the mark too when they merge God and America, tacitly (or not-so-tacitly) assuming that "God is on our side." In an arena where "political balance" has come to mean people from opposite ends of the ideological spectrum screaming at one another on a talk-show panel, Dr. Land seeks common ground. In answer to the hot air of extremist rhetoric, he offers cool reason, historical context, and constructive ideas for the future. In this provocative book, Dr. Land unearths surprising insights as he probes questions such as:  what liberals AND conservatives are both missing, and why; what a healthy role of religion in American life would look like; why ALL of us need the separation of church and state; whether this country has a

special role to play in the world; and why this all matters to believers and non-believers.  Are we the Divided States of America? Find out what you haven't been hearing in the God-and-country shouting match.  Dr. Land sheds light where others-from left and right-sow confusion. One can disagree on specific policies and still laud the author's dedication to America's founding values and his grasp of the proper role of religion in public life. The Divided States of America? Is essential reading for fair-minded people.
