The Russ Meyer of the Rapture

"In Christianity Today, Dean A. Anderson looks back fondly on the 40th anniversary of Donald W. Thompson’s A Thief in the Night. He manages to do so, somehow, without ever mentioning Donald W. Thompson. Odd. (The Godfather came out 40 years ago yesterday — think anyone will do an article on that without ever mentioning Francis Ford Coppola?) Fortunately, Randall Balmer has already provided us with a terrific profile of the idiosyncratic auteur — the Russ Meyer of the Rapture — in Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory: A Journey Into the Evangelical Subculture in America."
