The Truth Told about Bible, Religious Right and Politics
It has been the past several years that he has watched how the so called religious right has become an influencing player in the political arena with George W. Bush's candidacy and subsequent administration. Then we begin to hear the religious right wants this and that, and Karl Rove set up teleconferences with the big name televangelists, mega church pastors and others, stroking their egos, playing them for every vote and dollar he could get out of them. The clergy got to meddling where they were out of their league and a smart politician will out fox them every time. When screening the news outlets there was much about how the religious right was attempting to influence legislation in the halls of Congress, succeeding in some instances. This has been a concern of several politicians and clergy with some even insinuating that the administration was getting close to violating the Constitution which stipulates the distinct separation of church and state. There was a lot of hype put out in many news outlets: television, radio, newspapers and the internet about the Evangelical conservatives and fundamentalist power grab and their belief in the Bible as the inerrant word of God saying adamantly that the Bible is without error, with God being the author of every word written therein. This issue of inerrant verses errant is well documented in this book as are the hot political issues concerning the religious right's influence and political agenda. Three interesting chapters also delve into the President and God, the September 2001 terrorist attack and subsequent March 2003 attack (war) against Iraq.

Logical Perspective - Very Informative Mar 19, 2008
When looking at the chapter headings of this book I thought they sure sounded interesting, and interesting they were. I thoroughly enjoyed reading all the segments on the Bible, but the superb chapters on the 9-11 Terror attacks, War in Iraq,, our President and God, and the thorough coverage of the contentious politically hot topics of Embryonic Stem Cell Research, Abortion and Homosexuality certainly holds your attention too. This book is genuinely informative giving one a different understanding of the Bible and a better perspective on how religion influences our national political process one way or another. In summation, the 522 printed pages of this book is as the Author's preface states, being both informative and interesting reading, and it gives one a diverse insight about the Bible and Politics. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and would recommend this book to everyone, because it is as good a book on religion and politics that you can buy.
An Evangelical Looks At The Bible, Church and Politics Mar 14, 2008
While I am not a church-going Christian, I must say that I found this book to be very interesting, entertaining and informative. It is easy to read, even for the lay person. To me, it reveals one man's struggle to overcome his childhood beliefs after reality, maturity and experience has led him to other conclusions. Most people are not capable of such powerful growth during their lifetime. His way with words keeps the reader involved in what he has to say, and his knowledge of the subject is unending. Everyone to whom I have shown the book has expressed a desire to study it. In my opinion if more Christians were exposed to his moderate views, the world would be a better place.
Great Book! Feb 27, 2008
I've read a lot of books about church, religion, and the Bible. I probably should say I've started to read a lot of those books and became so utterly bored that I did not finish many of them. I have read most of this book of 500+ pages in the week that I have owned it and have not read a boring page. Bob has thoroughly researched his topics and does a wonderful job of explaining things so that people who are not scholars can understand what he is saying. He adds a touch of humor in places and also relates his personal experiences that make the reading even more interesting and readable. This is a book you can pick up, read a chapter, a few pages, or several pages and then pick up again and not have to read 20 pages to remember where you were. You will refer to it often. If you are at all interested in religion and the Bible, this book book belongs on your bookshelf.

"An Evangelical Looks at the Bible, Church and Politics" was, and is, an outstanding book and a very interesting read. I am a Christian and believe the basic foundation of Christianity as described in the Bible. Since I was a child; however, I have had many questions that have gone unanswered. This book discusses many of these questions and led me to a better understanding. It also adds very interesting insight into religion and how politicians USE religion to promote their agendas. The book, about the Bible and Political issues, is well documented and holds your attention through all 500 plus pages and is a must read. A good buy!
