In this penetrating and provocative assessment of the current state of religion and its effects on society at large, Philip J. Lee criticizes conservatives and liberals alike as he traces gnostic motifs to the very roots of American Protestantism. With references to an extraordinary spectrumof writings from sources as diverse as John Calvin, Martin Buber, Tom Wolfe, Margaret Atwood, and Emily Dickinson, he probes the effects of gnostic thinking on a wide range of issues. Calling for the restoration of a dialectical faith and practice, the book points to positive ways of restoringhealth to endangered Protestant churches.

"Lee writes in a clear and direct way, and has constructed a carefully organized argument supported by extensive reading in North American theology, literature and cultural analysis....Lee confronts us with an important message...and a prophetic voice that ought to be heard by all NorthAmerican Christians."--Toronto Journal of Theology
