Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jeff Sharlet is the only journalist to report from inside the C Street House, the Fellowship residence known by its Washington, D.C., address. This luxury townhouse, recently the setting of notorious political scandal, is more crucially home to efforts to transform American democracy.

After laying bare the Fellowship's history in his runaway bestseller The Family, Sharlet now shows that past efforts of America's religious fundamentalists pale in comparison to their long-term ambitions today.

In C STREET Sharlet reveals why culture wars endure and why they matter now--from the American-backed war on gays in Uganda to the battle for the soul of America's armed forces. Drawing on exclusive sources and explosive, newly disclosed documents, Sharlet exposes not the last gasp of old-time religion but the new front lines of American fundamentalism.
