More formal programme plug

The Analysis programme on American religion goes out next Thursday, 29 December, at 8.30 GMT, and can be heard for a week thereafter by any of this blog’s remarkably far-flung readers who have broadband. The cast ranges from a former president of the USA to a current commentator here. We have, in no particular order:

  • Jimmy Carter
  • Joseph Q. Wilson (apparently the man who came up with the slogan Just say No )
  • Professor Nicholas Boyle, the originator of the Transcendental Turkey Baster theory, though the phrase is due to
  • Harriet Baber, philosopher of this parish
  • Joseph Bottum, the editor of First Things magazine
  • The Rev’d Richard Cizik, chief lobbyist for the National Evangelical Association
  • Gordon Atkinson, better known as Real Live Preacher
  • The Rev’d Dr Judith Maltby (American chaplain of an Oxford college)
  • Professor James Morone, historian at Brown University.

People seriously interested in this topic should on no account neglect Clifford Longley’s excellent book Chosen People.
