Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory: A Journey into the Evangelical Subculture in America, 25th Anniversary edition

Randall Balmer

Abstract

This book takes a journey into the world of conservative Christians in America. This book, which is a tour of the highways and byways of American evangelicalism, describes a visit to a revival meeting in Florida, an Indian reservation in the Dakotas, a trade show for Christian booksellers, and a fundamentalist Bible camp in the Adirondacks. Through the eyes of those encountered on the journeys, the book shows a more accurate and balanced understanding of an abiding tradition that, as the text argues, is both rich in theological insights and mired in contradictions.

Keywords: conservative Christian America, American evangelicalism, Florida, Dakotas, Adirondacks, Indian reservation, Bible camp, fundamentalist
