About the Author
Praise For Spirit and Flesh: Life in a Fundamentalist Baptist Church…
“The best single-volume explanation of why American fundamentalist Christianity thrives among certain people, what needs it fulfills and why it will not die out.” –The Washington Post Book World“An absorbing, groundbreaking, and intimate tale. . . . An ethnographic study that often reads like a novel.” –The Christian Science Monitor“Not just a first-rate piece of sociological journalism. Ault weaves his own story into the book, and . . . gives Spirit and Flesh a warmth and humanity that set it apart.” –The San Francisco Chronicle“This brilliant book is essential for anyone who wants to better understand fundamentalism — or for fundamentalists who desire to understand how they are viewed by others.” –Christianity Today
