Subtitled "How fundamentalism betrays Christianity," this religious best seller shows how the fundamentalist agenda of judgementalism, hate, and laying down laws which must be adhered to, directly opposes the teachings of Jesus, which were all about love and acceptance. "Legalistic" Christians have never really owned Jesus, only stolen him to use as a figure head for their "Church of Law." Bawer argues for a return to a "Church of Love," with an emphasis on spiritual experience. He identifies this as a great need in modern society; he says: "Beneath the spirituality-killing surface of contemporary American culture lies a deep, unfulfilled hunger for genuine spiritual experience." Highly recommended.
