This is an important and timely book because once you read it you will begin to notice even more, especially in this election year, how conservative politicians are aligning themselves with the Religious Right. You will be more sensitized to comments regarding separation between church and state, and how the religious community interprets what the intent of separation is really about - in their mind it is a one-way street (governent should stay out of church matters, but churches can get involved in politics as much as they want). One of the bedrock principles of our country is that every person is free to pursue his/her religious beliefs (all belief systems) without fear of interference from their government. The Religious Right is very organized and effective at assaulting this principle. Those of us who wish to hold onto our freedoms must take this assault seriously and get involved to protect it. If your first reaction is to think this book is "alarmist"; please think again and examine the facts presented. Speak up!

I couldn't put it down. This book ties together all the pieces of the pervasive Dominionist movement. Theocrats reallly are systematically gaining control of the 'seven mountains' of our society. Because it is happening incrimentally, the alarms haven't sounded; and whenever there is push back against their encroaching agenda, they whine that their religious liberties are being violated. Meanwhile they are rewriting textbooks, prosteletyzing our military and funneling billions of tax dollars to further their cause, which is the United States under biblical law. The author gives us the true history of the movement and brings us up to date on its impressive progress. He takes us inside many subsets of this extremist world. I was particularily fascinated by the creepy Quiverfull movement. This stuff should be the stuff of fiction and conspiracy theories, but it is very real. It is also dangerously under reported.
Few people realize how pervasive the Religious Right's assault on Democracy really is. You have to understand that there are millions of radical true believers, legions of a very well-oiled machine, unthinkingly working to disassemble our Democracy in exchange for Biblical Law. This has been going on in all corners of our society, systematically for some time. Now there is a blatant disregard for the wall between church and state, as it has been almost completely knocked down by the wrecking ball of dogma. This book carefully exposes each aspect of that machine for the reader to be aware of, resist, and work to correct. Solutions and reasons for hope are also very carefully laid out in conclusion. Our first impression to this title is that this problem is surely a fringe thing and an Alarmist response. The truth is that this most definitely is NOT alarmist, and this book is an absolute must read to understand the details of why, how, and when we have been invaded by this radical Dominionist belief system.
