Book: Alleluia America: An Irish Journalist in Bush Country

Alleluia America: An Irish Journalist in Bush Country

By Carole Coleman

In June 2004, Carole Coleman made world headlines when she interviewed President George Bush on live television, challenging him on the war in Iraq in a way that few journalists had done. This book begins with an account of that interview and its aftermath. But Alleluia America! goes beyond that, travelling deep into Bush’s America, meeting many ordinary (and extraordinary) people. Carole Coleman’s journey takes her from Washington DC to Monroe, Georgia; from Annapolis to Delia, Kansas; from Salt Lake City to Intercourse, Pennsylvania; and from Midland, Texas to Guantanamo Bay. Along the way, she meets Baptists, Evangelical Christians, Catholics, Mormons, Amish, Jews, Muslims, and many shades between, and discovers that religion is far from a spent force, but has become the driving power that motivates people’s lives, a wave that carried George W. Bush to a second term as US President. Poignant, amusing and insightful, Alleluia America! provides a rare and fascinating outsider’s glimpse into the heart of God’s Country.

"A tour de force by the Irish journalist who stood up to the President of the United States and showed the White House press corps how it should be done." — Conor Clery, Irish Times US Correspondent
