Nonfiction Round-Up (3/4/20)

THE POWER OF WORSHIPPERS: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism by Katherine Stewart

“Journalist Stewart (THE GOOD NEWS CLUB) paints a disturbing picture in this thorough accounting of the rise of religious nationalism, which promotes that the United States was founded as a Christian nation and that the government should pass laws informed by a particular reading of the Bible…A must-read for those interested in the influence of religion on politics and the effects on our political institutions.”–Library Journal, starred review

RUST: A Memoir of Steel and Grit by Eliese Colette Goldbach

“Bringing her perspective as an outsider—both as a woman and a liberal—to this insightful account of the steel worker’s lot, Goldbach displays refreshing candor and hard-earned knowledge about the issues that divide us and the work that unites us.”–Booklist

THIN PLACES: Essays from In Between by Jordan Kisner

“In her forthright first essay collection, Kisner explores a variety of topics, from adolescence to mental health, relationships, and religion…Kisner’s essays offer genuine examination of the realities of here and now and life’s universal paradoxes.”–Booklist
