Reviews

At a time when the mere mention of religion can excite so much passion . . . and discord, Losing Moses on the Freeway offers sane and bracing ways to think about, and rethink, the whole subject of faith. -- O, The Oprah Magazine
Hedges' main point is that America is a nation marked by self-satisfaction, false piety, hypocrisy, and covetousness and that its institutions and culture aid and abet these very real failings. . . . If you're fed up with the sorry state of things in America today and aren't sure why, Hedges lays it out for you here. -- Baltimore Sun
Unfailingly well-written, compelling, and disturbing. . . . It's not an easy faith that Hedges describes, and that is the point. -- The American Prospect
