    1. John on said:

      Very disappointing; I was really hoping for something better - I would love to read a solid scholarly critique of the Christian Right. However, this is just a pop level book, airplane reading. Meyers' analysis is very surface - the Christian Right conspiracy is abusing Scripture to further business and political gains that are not the true teachings of Christianity. Okay, it's good he stood up to say that, but a more serious in-depth analysis would have been more effective at changing minds and [...]

    2. Joe Henry on said:

      With a title and cover art like this, one wonders who will read it. I am reminded of a conversation I had early in my experience as a church-sponsored coffeehouse manager (acoustic music presenter) when a veteran presenter from another city asked me, “Do your people like to be challenged?” Well, my sense is that folks on the “Christian Right” commonly are afflicted with might be called “blessed assurance” not only that Jesus is theirs but that they are right in most respects, if not [...]

      “Almost before the [9/11] dust had settled; I knew that we were being put to the test. It was a test that required greatness in a president and the capacity for real sacrifice from the rest of us. Therefore, it was a test we were doomed to fail. What's more, at just the moment when we needed the virtues of true faith, we were in grave danger of getting religion at its worst.” ~ Robin MeyersHatred and fear together lead to religious bigotry. According to James Dobson, Jerry Falwell, and Pat R [...]

    4. Clint on said:

      A must read for all Christians who vote Republican. Rev. Robin Meyers explains the truth of the so called Conservative Christian Right party and how they have used. abused God and people's faith to manipulate voters. Written during the Bush Administration, Rev. Meyers breaks down a speech that he gave at an Oklahoma Peace Rally. By examining the political realms of America, and applying what Jesus was and taught the Republican Party is far from upholding moral and Christian family values. Many P [...]

      Wow, Robin Meyers is one seriously pissed off individual! I mean, blow your top pissed off. I can dig it, to a degree, because the same things tick me off, but I think he let his passions get the best of him in this literary effort. I think he spends too much time ranting, and not enough time providing plausible alternatives, nor linking the political with the religious. I think he could have done more with that, and should have. I think he owed it to the reader. Indeed, the first third of the b [...]

    6. Carrie on said:

      He makes great points, but I gave him a 1 because I just couldn't get through it due to the tell you I'll tell you - tell you - told you I told you writing style and the fact that all of the failures and breaches of this administration are all too painfully familiar that it's hard to read about them now - maybe this book will be a good resource once the facts and current conditions have faded from collective memory. The chapter regarding homophobia and Biblical references is very good to read an [...]

    7. Aaron on said:

      This is a very strong book that really gets to the long-forgotten heart of Jesus. Though written during and affected by the latter Bush years, the message is very much applicable. Again and again, I'm shocked and disgusted by the actions of the fundamentalists and their counterfeit claim of Christianity. It's no wonder that the word "Christian" is a dirty word to so many people. However, I was once very similar and have to forgive and love these people. This book has set a fire under my booty an [...]

    8. Len Knighton on said:

      Written during the Bush years, the message is still important even if the war in Iraq is over. I'm not sure we have progressed as much in the Obama years as we had hoped, but while his critics point out the huge debt accumulated during these years, at least we can say that the money is going for the people, not for war.

      Didn't you know Jesus was actually a bad ass peacenik for social justice? Here's how born-again Christians, including George W. Bush, have bastardized Christianity and how you can negotiate Jesus' release from evangelical hijackers!
