1 - 2 weeks availability
A German who has called Europe, Central America, and North America home at various times in his life, Geiko Muller-Fahrenholz has the perspective of an outsider who yet loves the United States, making him uniquely qualified to present a portrait of how American society is perceived throughout the world and how the current religious factor in politics can look like a pious cloak thrown over secular selflshness. He does so without reservation, exploring super-patriotism, the "lost opportunity" of 9/11, and the dangerous clash of fundamentalisms. "America's Battle for God" is a challenging read. Muller-Fahrenholz gently yet boldly confronts America with its image in the eyes of the world - and with the urgent need to reinvent itself before it's too late.
Geiko Muller-Fahrenholz is a writer, lecturer and ecumenical consultant. Currently the coordinator of the International Ecumenical Peace Convocation, he has served on the World Council of Churches, acted as Director of the Protestant Academy of the Nordelbische Lutheran Church and been a professor in Costa Rica.
