Críticas:

"Christopher Douglas's If God Meant to Interfere is an eloquent, learned, and utterly engrossing study of American literature and culture in an era of resurgent religious conservatism." Tracy Fessenden, Arizona State University, author of Culture and Redemption: Religion, the Secular, and American Literature"

"Christopher Douglas takes us on a most fantastic journey through a medley of recent American novels, tracing how they obliquely registered the politics of the conservative Christian resurgence and its surprising entanglements with multiculturalism and postmodernism, as all three movements forswore the insipid secular assimilationist consensus of the 1950s and early 1960s. If God Meant to Interfere powerfully subverts the mind-numbing secular/religious dichotomy that dominates most writing about the period the so-called culture wars and cultivates a more nuanced, generative attention to lively interstitial worlds in which nothing is either/or, and everything is both/and." Susan Harding, University of California, Santa Cruz"

"In this volume Douglas (English, Univ. of Victoria, Canada)continues work on multiculturalism he began inA Genealogy of Literary Multiculturalism(CH, Oct'09, 47-0711)by considering how American authors responded to the conservative Christian resurgence in the late 20th century.Douglas's literary analysis rests on firmer footings than his political commentary; in taking faith seriously, Douglas offers incisive literary readings, whether tracing Cormac McCarthy's consideration of theodicy or exposing Philip Roth's failure to confront the power of religious belief.Summing Up: Recommended. With reservations. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty."--J. Bilbro, Choice (December 2016)
