Summary (From the publisher):

Randall Balmer's Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory is an insightful and engaging journey into the world of conservative Christians in America. Originally published fifteen y eras ago, it was the basis for an award-winning PBS documentary. This timely new edition arriaves just as recent elections have left an ever-growing number of secular Americans wondering exactly how the other half thinks.

From Oregon to Florida, and from Texas to North Dakota, Balmer offers an immensely readable tour of the highways and byways of American evangelicalism. We visit 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.

Edition #1: Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory

Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory (2006)
Edition Details:

For this fourth edition, Balmer adds two chapters: one on the phenomenally popular "Painter of Light," Thomas Kinkade, and other people Balmer meets on his journey. We arrive at a more accurate and balanced understanding of an abiding tradition that, as the author argues, is both rich in theological insights and mired in contradictions. Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory offers readers a genuine insight into the appeal that the evangelical movement holds for millions of Americans.
