“America is still a great gnostic fantasy that reshapes material existence more rapidly, more alarmingly, more mercilessly, and more ebulliently than a people properly ballasted by historical consciousness would generally think possible or even desirable. And yet no nation, in the wake of Christendom’s decline, has done more to confuse the story Christians should tell with the kinds of stories sinful human beings long to tell…Where else but here could the history of God in Christ have ever been told quite so falsely? And will Christianity ever really reach these shores?”
