This Fall's elections will see much discussion about the power of the Christian fundamentalist Right, leaving many people to wonder- just who are these people and what exactly do they want? The Reverend Mel White, a deeply religious man who sees fundamentalism as "evangelical Christian orthodoxy gone cultic," believes that it is not a stretch to say that the true goal of today's fundamentalists is to break down the wall that separates church and state, superimpose their "moral values" on the U.S. Constitution, replace democracy with theocratic rule, and ultimately create a new "Christian America" in their image. Religion Gone Bad is a wake-up call to all of us to take heed.

White is singularly qualified to write this expose of the Christian Right because he himself was a true believer who served the evangelical movement as pastor, professor, filmmaker, television producer, author, and ghostwriter for such fundamentalist leaders as Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, and Billy Graham, all of whom he got to know well.

The first half drags a little, but the second tells us what fundamentalists realy think and why. The author pulls no punches. He warns of the facism inherent in extreme litteral thinking and offers ways of combating them.
