About the Author

K. C. BOYD GREW UP IN OHIO, unaware, for the most part, of the vast array of religions and religious practices that have marked humankind. While earning a BA in psychology in Louisiana, Boyd became aware of the growing number of radical right-wing Christians who were quietly hoping for the world to end so that Jesus Christ would return.

When the 2004 election demonstrated that this extreme Christian worldview had found acceptance in right-wing politics, Boyd began a strange and often frightening period of exploration by attending far-right evangelical services and conferences throughout the United States. Concerned about the increasing danger of mixing politics with end-times Christianity, Boyd realized the time had come to expose this reality through the medium of fiction. The result, born of close observation of key personalities, is Being Christian.

This dark story sets it targets on today's headlines and does so in a fast-paced, plot based story. Before I read the book, I was as aware of the Christian Right as the next person. We saw them in the GOP primaries, that's for sure. Now though, when I hear things like the alliance between Akin and Paul Ryan,I see it in a different and much more frightening light. The author does a great job of setting the scene and leading you into the world of pastor as con-man. I couldn't possibly give this story a stronger recommendation than this: EVERYBODY MUST READ THIS ONE! I was given this book to read by Smith Publicity.
