Overview

Bitter Root - Atheistic Practices Embedded in Christian Fundamentalism by Jeri Massi

Using case histories and the teachings of Christian Fundamentalist preachers themselves, Jeri Massi shows that Christian Fundamentalism draws a considerable amount of its religious culture from the philosophies attributed to atheist philosophers Fredrich Nietzsche, Ivan Pavlov, and BF Skinner, in direct opposition to the teachings of Scripture. Massi shows, from the Bible, that Christian Fundamentalism's insistence on a literal interpretation of the Bible is not so much literal as it is a materialist interpretation, removing from the Bible much of its wisdom and vitality.

About the Author

A graduate of Bob Jones University, Jeri Massi has been documenting and tracking clergy sex abuse of children in Christian Fundamentalism for over a decade. After more than a decade of experiencing denials, evasions, and even threats from Christian Fundamentalist preachers, she now shines a light on a religion that is merely a counterfeit of the Christian faith. Massi capably uses the Bible as her measuring stick, and the result is a surprising demonstration of Christian Fundamentalism's secular, even atheistic, underpinnings.
