Salvation Mountain

February 25, 2016

For historians and other scholars, religion provides an endless supply of fascinating narratives. And few experiences are as sweet as encountering a previously unknown but utterly bizarre and remarkable story.

I had that experience reading Sara Patterson’s just-released Middle of Nowhere: Religion, Art, and Pop Culture at Salvation Mountain, a lucid chronicle and analysis of the monument to God’s love created by Leonard Knight in the California desert.

Read the rest of historian John Turner’s post about Patterson’s book on Salvation Mountain, California here at Patheos: Salvation Mountain
