Christ of the American Road sums up E. Stanley Jones’ attempt to “interpret the kinds of Christianity emerging out of the American democracy.” Jones believed that each nation contained within itself a unique and distinctive interpretation of the universal Christ. According to Jones, America is a possibility and a portent, for here peoples from nearly all the nations of the earth have gathered, and become one nation. For Jones, the solution to America’s longstanding structural flaws was a spiritual battle against apathy and selfishness. This book is nothing less than a detailed battle plan for the reconsecration of the United States.
