Matthew Avery Sutton - American Apocalypse

From Nine To Noon, 10:10 am on 10 September 2015

American Apocalypse by Matthew Avery Sutton follows the stories of early evangelists, the meeting halls and publications that gave a specific world view of the Bible, Armageddon and a second coming of Christ. With backdrops of World wars, the Great Depression and threats from foreign super powers, the focus on an anhilistic outcome for non-Christians, has not been hard to sustain among religious conservatives and it's informed American politics on everything from the US position on the State of Israel to Obama Care and how Russia should be regarded.
