Randall Balmer's Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory is an insightful and engaging journey into the world of conservative Christians in America. Originally published twenty-five years ago and the basis for an award-winning, three-part PBS documentary, this new edition is complete with a new chapter and an Afterword. In this immensely readable tour of the highways and byways of American evangelicalism, Balmer visits a revival meeting in Florida, an Indian reservation in the Dakotas, a trade show for Christian booksellers, and a fundamentalist Bible camp in the Adirondacks. Through the eyes of those that Balmer meets on his journeys, we arrive at a more accurate and balanced understanding of an abiding tradition that, as the author argues, is both rich in theological insights and mired in contradictions. Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory offers readers a genuine insight into the appeal that the evangelical movement holds for thousands of Americans.

"The experiences of Mary Blackford and her family constitute an interesting and revealing account of ante-bellum Southern life, pointing out that Southern society had many nuances. The book contains new material on Southern opposition to slavery, the experience of Negroes sent to Liberia, the Nat Turner insurrection, and the reaction of colored folk to thralldom. Much of the material comes from the Negroes themselves."--Preface.

Televangelists stand out as the most conspicuous element of the evangelical subculture in America. The bizarre antics of such notorious figures as Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart regularly make it into the headlines and the evening news. But as Randall Balmer reveals in this colorful narrative, these men represent merely one small part of a strikingly diverse religious movement. Crisscrossing the country, from Oregon to Florida and from Texas to North Dakota, Balmer takes readers on a journey into the heart of evangelical America, visiting an old-fashioned, holiness camp meeting in St. Petersburg, Florida, an Indian reservation in the Dakotas, a huge trade show for Christian booksellers, and a fundamentalist Bible camp in the Adirondacks. Throughout this reflective series of New Yorker-like profiles, Balmer fills in the theological and historical background, creating, in effect, a capsule history of evangelicalism.

Chief and most unbelievable character in this self-proclaimed "novel of the new American revolution" is Arkansas Representative Timotheus Denney, who is cast as the legislative wizard and bourbon-breathing Grand Dragon of all the sheetless Klansmen on Capitol Hill. This Ozark Ozymandias wants the Government to build him a $2 billion Denney Dam back in Yell County, Ark. But he faces an ironic choice: the dam will be voted out of committee only if Denney pledges support for a civil rights bill. Never, he yells, and threatens to touch off race war if the dam doesn't go through. But before Denney can rouse his rabble, he learns that his son David (he has another son, but he is half-Negro and does not count) has been arrested with a bunch of freedom riders and beaten to sour mash in jail. It is enough to make a man get religion--and that is what old Tim Denney does. Before anyone could say John Brown, he votes for civil rights, gets his dam, retires from politics, and is named Best Christian of the Year. --Time 3 July 1964.
