God’s Marshall Plan: American Protestants and the Struggle for the Soul of Europe (New York: Oxford University Press, 2021).

God’s Marshall Plan explores how the American effort to revive war-torn Europe led to profound religious, political, and diplomatic changes on both sides of the Atlantic. In particular, this book shows how the struggle for Europe’s soul fostered competing theologies of global and civic engagement across the North Atlantic world. It weighs how these theologies of Christian globalism and Christian nationalism endure to this day and continue to powerfully shape how American and European Protestants think about their political and global roles.
