I have written two books and co-edited a third. My first book, Epic Encounters, is a study of how US media and popular culture constructed the Middle East in the context of expanding US power in the region after 1945. The co-edited collection (with R. Marie Griffith), is Religion and Politics in the Contemporary United States.  I have just completed The Kingdom of God Has No Borders: A Global History of American Evangelicals, forthcoming with Oxford Univ. Press in 2018.
