I don’t recommend a lot of books. But to unwind from politics, I love a good, weird “who done it.” THE LYING CLUB by @_Annie_Ward is a funny, creepy, dark crime thriller I just couldn’t put down. If you’re into this kind of thing like I am, get your hands on it.👇      source

The Immoral Majority
Why Evangelicals Chose Political Power over Christian Values
Ben Howe - 2019-08-13
Goodreads Rating
This book explores the possible reasons why evangelicals are losing the culture war, and if they are to blame for their decline. Written by Ben Howe, this book delves into the history of the Christian Right and how it led to the current state of the conservative movement. Howe examines the intellectual dishonesty and manipulative rhetoric that evangelical leaders use to convince Christians to follow the Republican Party line. He argues that unless evangelicals prioritize persuasion over power, they will continue to lose influence in the world. The Immoral Majority urges readers to value the eternal over the ephemeral, humility over ego, and resist the temptation of political power.
Joe Walsh
I read it. You will thoroughly enjoy it. It’s a very important book. Well done @BenHowe.      source
