    A great read, but a little too far reaching

    This is a great book for Christians and non-Christians. What I especially liked was how the author used scripture to prove his points as well as disprove the points of the far right fundamentalists. There are some points of the book that were a bit far reaching, involving his interpretation of Paul, Ruth and Naomi's sexuality. Otherwise, this is a great read, but remember to approach it with objectivity

    Excellent and its about time!

    This book was outstanding. It was refreshing to finally read the truth about how the Republicans have used religion to gain power through lies and broken promises.

    An excellent examination of the 'false' republican mandate!

    Having managed to come across an early review copy of this title, I must say I'm suitably impressed with the research which went into this title. Mr. Press outlines the 'mandate' the republican majority seems to believe they received with the election and then the re-election of President Bush. He also outlines several contentious issues which the republicans have used throughout the decades to push religion into the public sphere where it is forced on those who do not agree with their views. Or forced on individuals who are not 'believers' in the sense of a true religious belief. Through exhaustive quotes of our founding fathers, of whom George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin are just a few, and exhaustive research on biblical texts, Mr. Press has concluded rightly that our country is NOT a Christian Nation as the fundamentalists would have us believe. And even more singularly, Christianity desires to maintain it's necessary distance from influencing the government as well.
