God Land: A Story of Faith, Loss, and Renewal in Middle America Reviews

  • Kari
    “A white Christian pastor, ignoring the violence against Muslims while perpetuating a victim narrative for Tim Tebow, is part of the story of faith, most notably the stories we fail to tell. And these silences are inextricably linked to race, power, and class.”“And if we want to know ...

    When I started following Lyz Lenz on Twitter, I thought she was a stand-up comedian. It turns out she is a journalist and memoirist who has created a searing and thoughtful (but also funny and compelling) book about what it means to be an evangelical Christian right now in the midwestern United Stat...

    I spent the better part of my day today reading this book. It was earth-shattering for me. I dug out my sticky page-markers so I could remember all the beautiful, brilliant, true passages.

    This book is fine...but with a little more time and MUCH better editing, it could have been great. (I really cannot stress how abysmally poor the editing is. They done you wrong, Lyz!) This feels like a book that was written in a hurry—lots of repeated statistics, facts, and arguments make it p...
  • Holly
    I'm really enjoying the story of this writer/journalist's path through and away from the Evangelical church, and how it coincides with the rise of Trumpian conservatism. But I find myself distracted and frustrated by the many grammar and punctuation errors. Please, Indiana University Press, it's wor...
