Summary, etc.:
"Shows the many ways today's right-wing evangelical Christianity is the antithesis of the message of Jesus, and how their dangerous and false of the Christian faith is destroying both the faith and American society"-- Provided by publisher.
Hendricks Jr. challenges right-wing evangelicals on their own religious claims, exposing the falsehoods, contradictions, and misuses of the Bible that are embedded in their rabid homophobia, their poorly veiled racism and demonizing of immigrants and Muslims, and their ungodly alliance with big business against the interests of American workers. In the wake of the deadly insurrectionist attack on the US Capitol, he provides a clarion call to stand up to the hypocrisy of the evangelical right, as well as a guide for Christians to return their faith to the life-affirming message that Jesus brought and died for. -- adapted from jacket
