Reviews - What do customers think about Political Twerps, Cultural Jerks, Church Quirks?
Intelligent?? Apr 25, 2006
That anyone can read this book and conclude that it is an intelligent presentation is, well, not very analytical. This book is about as deep as a thimble flattened by a steam roller. Save your money, don't throw it away. I wish that more evangelical Christians were using their education to write thoroughly researched books without borrowing from others like C.S. Lewis (who was not an evangelical). Giles is not original, but then neither is Rick Warren in his "Purpose Driven Life" (he just borrows from tried and true psychology and mixes Bible verses in with it). So I wonder, "Who is reading this stuff?" Maybe some of the kids (the ones who are doing any reading at all), or some who put Harry Pothead down for a minute to read something else?? The church has gone a long way in my lifetime and it looks like it's just about to jump off the intellectual cliff!
What else is...new? Apr 18, 2006
First it was Michael Savage, then Laura Ingraham, then...or was it Laura then Michael along with everyone else? What I mean is that Giles churns out a book that says everything that other conservative popular radio hosts and writers have already said, but says it with no persuasion whatsoever. I am much more engaged with a Limbaugh, or with a Laura (when she doesn't stammer when reading something), than by Giles. Virtually all of the liberal nutty ideas are once again given to us in a rush job. The book reminds me of a high school term paper, filled with hysteria which clearly affects pellucid argumentation. Give me a a good argument without hype and name-calling. Thank god the conservative movement has the Buckleys, Kudlows, Hansons, Kolakowskis, et al. Save your money and invest it in writers who, over time, will have real cultural and intellectual impact.
Lasering the Liberal Left Sep 26, 2004
Doug Giles turns his pen into a laser as he identifies and analyzes the Liberal attack on all aspects of our society. He shows how every sector of American life -- politics, culture and church -- is under attack, as the Left seeks to change us from a nation of independent-minded, God-fearing individualists to collectivized, entitlement-demianding atheists.
Awesome book! Sep 22, 2004
This book is an incredible jab to the gut of the best that the liberal left has to offer against Christianity, Culture, and the political rhelm. Giles is a master of satire while maintaining an strong and intelligent voice in the political debate. I highly recommend this book!
