When I posted episode #130 I mentioned that the national attention The Coming Evangelical Collapse received was a catalyst in Michael’s decision to publish a book.

Let me begin by apologizing for not posting last week. I never realized; my wife mentioned it on Saturday.

Episode #130 is quintessential Michael Spencer. In this episode he talks about the sudden rise in popularity of the Coming Evangelical Collapse posts. The national level of attention of that series of posts received is in large part responsible for the book deal that later followed. The second half of the episode shifts to evangelicalism in the modern American culture. He uses a borrowed term to note the effect Rush Limbaugh had over the course of two decades to define and direct Christian conservatives.
