Naming the Antichrist: The History of an American Obsession

Robert C. Fuller


The Antichrist, though mentioned a mere four times in the Bible, and then only obscurely, has exercised a tight hold on popular imagination throughout history. This has been particularly true in the United States, states this book, where Americans have tended to view their nation as uniquely blessed by God—a belief that leaves them especially prone to demonizing their enemies. This book takes us on a fascinating journey through the dark side of the American religious psyche, from the earliest American colonists right up to contemporary fundamentalists such as Pat Robertson and Hal Lindsey.

Keywords: Antichrist, Bible, God, religion, United States, Americans, enemies, demonizing
