Robert Nelson and his book continue to receive recognition and acclaim. In addition to winning the Eric Hoffer Book Award Grand Prize and the Silver Medal IPPY Award, Nelson has been invited regularly to speak on radio across the country in conjunction with the C-SPAN re-broadcast of his Book TV special. His timely analysis of economics and environmentalism continues to shape the debate surrounding these two contemporary religions and their mutually antagonistic relations in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Don't miss the opportunity to watch these three top experts on the "clash of two public theologies"! The outcome of this conflict will have profound consequences for us all.
