A little over a year ago, I mentioned some lectures that Dr. Mark Noll gave at Princeton University entitled, “Race, Religion and American Politics from Nat Turner to George W. Bush”. Those lectures are being published in an upcoming book, God and Race in American Politics. Dr. Noll also co-edited an updated edition of the book, Religion and American Politics: From the Colonial Period to the Present. Dr. Noll does an excellent job of showing how we misunderstand the problem of race in America without also considering how political thought has developed in America also.
