American Heretics: The Politics of the Gospel challenges what we think we know about the Christian heartland by offering a rare personal glimpse into the contentious and often misunderstood history of religion, race, and politics in America, as seen through the point of view of a courageous group of Oklahomans working to bridge the divide within their communities. Leading historical, religious and constitutional experts, such as Reverend Robin Meyers, Dr. Bernard Brandon Scott, Dr. Robert Jones, Oklahoma State Rep Collin R. Walke, former Southern Baptist turned progressive faith minister Reverend Lori Walke and the Reverend Bishop Carlton Pearson, whose dramatic fall from grace with Oral Roberts was chronicled in Ira Glass’s This American Life, and later turned into the feature film Come Sunday, which premiered at Sundance in 2018. American Heretics: The Politics of the Gospel also brings a compelling perspective into how the conservative Christian agenda emerged over the last 30 years to become a powerful and divisive force in today’s political landscape.
