Mark's next book, Who’s Afraid of Christian Nationalism: Why Christian Nationalism is Not an Existential Threat to America or the Church, will be published in April of 2024 by Fidelis Books. It shows definitively that American Christian nationalism does not, as its critics claim, pose “an existential threat to American democracy and the Christian church in the United States.” As well, it critiques the handful of Americans who advocate for Christian nationalism. The book shines light on a debate characterized by unfounded claims, rhetorical excesses, and fear-mongering. 

Is the sky falling? Fear of Donald Trump increased the revenues of big media companies in 2016, and fear of “Christian nationalism” in 2024 is helping the sale of books screaming about it. Mark David Hall’s remarkably even-tempered, even-handed analysis examines the hype from both sides. He shows us where we should be concerned and where we should just sadly smile, in the realization that God still holds up the sky. 


Hall’s writing is succinct and often witty. He notes that “Don Quixote mistakenly attacked windmills that he believed were evil giants, but that does not mean that evil giants don’t exist.” He writes that Paul, Augustine, and Martin Luther might object to “Trump’s post-presidential claim that ‘nobody has done more for Christianity or for evangelicals or for religion itself than I have,' but of course they wouldn’t, as those men at least attempted to practice the Christian virtue of humility.”

With so much anti-American propaganda out there, this volume by an award-winning historian is much needed. With fascinating insight into American history, he debunks many of the myths spawned by critical race theorists without soft-coating the shortcomings of America’s founders.

Proclaim Liberty Throughout the Land.jpg

Mark David Hall is one of our most outstanding scholars of early America, whose many distinguished publications have argued persuasively for the crucial importance of Christianity in the flourishing of America’s experiment in ordered liberty. In Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land, he has placed at the disposal of readers the essential elements in the case he has made for Christianity’s beneficial and indispensable influence. Never has a resource been more needed than this one is today.
