Overview

Illuminating, often troubling, and unapologetically frank, Righteous is dynamic young journalist Lauren Sandler's report from the nexus of religious fundamentalism and youth culture. As a secular guide through the passion and politics of the teenage evangelical "Disciple Generation," Sandler offers the first front line exploration of the Christian youth counterculture and what its influence could mean for the future of America. She intimately connects with skateboarding missionaries, tattooed members of a self-sufficient postpunk mega- church, rock- 'n'-rolling antiabortion protestors, and rap preachers who merge hip-hop's love of money with old- fashioned Bible-beating fundamentalism-true believers who reveal themselves with openness and truly astonishing candor, but what they reveal about our nation is most astonishing of all.

Editorial Reviews

Christine Rosen
… Sandler's book is an intriguing journey into a burgeoning and often contradictory phenomenon. The glimpses it gives us of a new, God-fearing generation of young Americans -- intelligent, comfortable with popular culture, technologically savvy and intent on saving souls -- will surprise many readers, even if it does not convince them of the righteousness of this movement's cause.
— The Washington Post

    A refreshing look at Christian youth movements.

    What do the Christian semi-cultish movements of today demand from their participants? What do they give in return? Why do they grow in popularity? Is your child likely to be recruited? All parents, Christian or not, should read this book. Even from a Christian standpoint, not all possible uses of Jesus' name are appropriate.

    Angry and bitter

    I read this book (although I am a Christian) becuase I wanted to be able to answer questions about it, if asked. However, I found the book to be so angry and hateful towards Christians that any message the author wanted to get out is lost. Hate, even in the form of a book, is unattractive to the soul.
