- In the beginning -- As goods increase, so do those who consume them -- The new Jerusalem -- He will act deceitfully -- To each province in its own script and to each people -- In its own language -- For many will come in my name, claiming, "I am he," and, "the time is near" -- And books were opened -- Children will see it and be joyful -- How awesome is the Lord -- For their rock is not like our rock -- Celebrate a festival to the Lord -- Let them praise His name with dancing -- Our mouths were filled with laughter -- Give me a man and let us fight each other -- Let a search be made for beautiful young virgins -- Train the younger women to love their husbands -- The opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge -- Their visions are false and their divinations a lie.
- What does it mean when a band is judged by how hard they pray rather than how hard they rock? What do Christian skate parks, raves, and romance novels say about evangelicalism--and America? Reported with a blend of amusement and respect, this is the story of Daniel Radosh's investigation into the deeply weird world of Christian pop culture. This sprawling subculture--a $7 billion industry and growing--provides crucial insight into the social, spiritual, and political aspirations of evangelical Christians. In 18 towns from the Bible Belt to the outskirts of Hollywood, Radosh encounters such memorable characters as Bibleman, the Caped Christian and Rob Adonis, the founder and star of ultimate Christian wrestling. From Christian theme parks to Passion plays and comedy nights, Radosh combines gonzo reporting with a keen eye for detail and just the right touch of wit.--From publisher description.
