The Savage Side critiques the primary models of deity in dominant political theologies, especially those which align God with the natural world. The justice-seeking, political revolutionary God that the oppressed worship has dwindled back to the political fervor from which it sprang. In its place, a God based on our struggling existence in the natural world emerges, terrifyingly indifferent to any political or moral ideology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book articulates an important corrective to a dominant 'model of God'. Most importantly, it charts a fresh trajectory for natural theology-one that, interestingly enough, has far more in common with the God we meet in biblical texts than the one whitewashed by our moral and political pieties. * Theology Today *
Her [Carrol's] critique is broadly persuasive. * Journal of Religion *
This book demands to be read by anyone, regardless of their religious, political, or ethnic identity, interested in the relationship between religion and politics. Not all readers will agree with all of Carroll's perceptions but most will by stirred by the depth of her God-wrestling as well as by her skillful exploration of how surprisingly intertwined "secular" literature and philosophy are with divinity's challenge and summons to humanity. Even those deeply discomfited by her unwavering message will be struck by the unsettling beauty of her close readings of Dillard and Levinas, surely two of the most robust thinkers of the late twentieth century. It is a boldly confrontational work and a great challenge to us all. * Religion & Literature *
