Overview
Holiness and hedonism. Lonesomeness and community. Tradition and progress. Highly regarded commentator on Christianity and popular culture Rodney Clapp argues that these great tensions form the bedrock of American history and our current culture. Utilizing the life and music of Johnny Cash to illustrate these and other American contradictions, he probes these phenomena with sharp theological questions-seeking the language and knowledge that will enable us to reach across red states/blue states divides and encourage a more graceful and constructive negotiation of current contradictions.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Shallow disappoinment  Oct 5, 2008
A great idea that isn't very illuminating about either Johnny Cash or religion in America.
 
Where's the stuff about Johnny Cash  Aug 2, 2008
Johnny Cash is one of the most interesting figures in American music in the recent past. I got this book fully expecting it to have a lot of information about how Cash's music dealt with the author's "Great American Contradiction" of hedonism vs holiness.

There's not very much about Johnny Cash or his music in this book.
