Just finished reading this book . . . It is a wake up call to citizens on both sides of the 49th Parallel as to how radical thought can pervade society.
Most of us are well aware of the evangelical christian influence on the current political scene. The extent of policy-making power that has been achieved may, however, surprise you. People and programs already in place in our government - and funded by our tax dollars - are intent on determining the future course of all aspects of society.
The author does an excellent job of chronicling the rise of and current levels of government involvement by the christian nationalists . . . . A good read and highly recommended to both believers and nonbelievers as a wake up call to rational thought.
The following review is from Amazon.com and is a good synopsis of the book:
Make no mistake about it, there are millions of passionate conservative Christians intent on taking over America and Goldberg does a darn good job explaining exactly how they plan to do it. Mobilize the Churches, home school the kids, create Think Tanks, buy media, own publishing companies, find Evangelical Colleges, takeover local government, obsess about abortion and gay marriage. This isn't a book about political theory--this is book about on-the-ground tactics. Goldberg has done her homework--attended the conferences, toured the campuses, interviewed dozens of Christian nationalists. But don't expect a cool nuanced presentation, Goldberg is mighty offended and plenty worried and not the least bit afraid to let it show.
