Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For decades, Press argues, conservatives have defined religion so narrowly that Democrats and liberals have been pushed outside the fold. According to their narrow gospel, God put George W. Bush in the White House to deal with gays, guns, and abortion—and those who don’t agree are on the sure road to hell. How the Republicans Stole Religion is Press’s fervent call for the left to reclaim religion and return it to its basic principles of social justice, charity, and tolerance.

Synopsis:

A provocative critique of the relationship between conservative Republicans and the religious right offers a fervent call for liberals and Democrats to restore the basic principes of social justice, tolerance, and charity championed by Jesus in the gospels. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
