An intimate portrait of evangelicals, one of the most influential forces in America today, and the story of how this lapsed believer came to terms with his faith. Born again at age sixteen, journalist Marks later abandoned his faith. In this book he attempts to cross a deep cultural barrier to understand those who now condemn his secular way of life. He grapples with the message that millions of evangelicals attempt to deliver to their fellow citizens every day and speaks at length with missionaries, political activists, theologians, Christian musicians, and filmmakers--the rich and powerful, the poor and broken, and the pastors who have turned small congregations into megachurches. This is familiar and often comforting territory for Marks, and he still has a profound understanding of what it means to be an evangelical. Here he presents this world from the inside out.--From publisher description.
A chronicle of the evangelical life, written by a born-again Christian and former "60 Minutes" producer, seeks to bridge the gaps between believers and non-believers.
