"We know our country is in the midst of a vast and troubling cultural revolution, and is in the grips of a fevered religious radicalism where every political issue is a battle between good and evil. Without the knowledge of many, though, a large number of Americans who call themselves Christian Nationalists are mobilizing to dissolve the separation of church and state. In her brave new book, Kingdom Coming:The Rise of Christian Nationalism, Salon.com writer Michelle Goldberg carefully demonstrates how the growing influence of dominionism - the doctrine that Christians have the right to rule non-believers - is threatening the foundations of democracy" (Cody's Books, 2006).
Michelle Goldberg is a senior writer for Salon.com. Because the online magazine's staff is relatively small, its reporters' beats are large, and she's covered everything from New York's drug laws to Kurdish refugees in the Middle East, reporting from all over the United States and from Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, Israel and the West Bank. One constant in her peripatetic career is a fascination with the role of ideology in politics, leading her to report extensively on both sides of America's ever-seething culture war.
In addition to working at Salon, Goldberg has been an adjunct professor at the Graduate School of Journalism at New York University, teaching a class called "Writing Social Commentary." She's also been a columnist for the San Francisco Bay Guardian and for Shift Magazine, and her work has appeared in publications including Rolling Stone, The New Republic online, The UK Guardian, The Utne Reader, Newsday and other newspapers nationwide.
