I'm currently reading "The Power Worshippers" by Katherine Stewart. Is anyone else reading this? Seems like a great non-fiction book to discuss here with its meaty contents. I'm only a few hours into it, but I've just got to share that this book is likely of great interest to a lot of folks here, in the U.S. anyway.

It answers a lot of questions I had like how can so many Christian folks see Trump as a savior, when he's about the least Christian politician I've ever seen.

If you didn't see Christian Nationalism as much of a threat to our democracy, read this book, which might really open your eyes. Yes, it's also on Audible, besides in print. Wow. Now back to reading...

Thanks , some of the ultra religious I know wear BLINDERS when it comes to politics-they believe religion is so powerful that ANY dissent
from the churches doctrine should be met with
fire & brimstone. Common sense & human dignity DO NOT enter into thier equations
Thanks

The 2020 elections may have ended another Great Awakening.

If Donald Trump had been as driven as Italy’s Benito Mussolini and Germany’s Adolf Hitler, he and the xian nationalists might have succeeded

Thanks, I've been looking for a book to help me get inside the Trump-supporting Christian's brain.

Are you SURE you want to understand them?

Posted by ReignmondI read this back in 2018. Absolutely loved it. It is an oddly small sized book, so it is good to travel with. [amazon.com]

Posted by HannaYouI might be a bit late to the party, but for those who like Scandinavian crime thrillers (or any type of mystery/crime books), have you read Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole series?
