Summary: An eye-opening account of a groundswell religious movement determined to change America. Michelle Goldberg's Kingdom Coming takes us on a journey through an America in the grips of a fevered religious radicalism: the America of our time. From the classroom to the megachurch to the federal court, Goldberg carefully demonstrates how the growing influence of dominionism-the doctrine that Christians have the right to rule nonbelievers-is threatening the foundations of democracy. Deep within the "red" zones of a divided America we meet military retirees pledging to seize the nation in Christ's name, perfidious congressmen courting the confidence of neo-confederates and proponents of theocracy, and leaders of federally funded programs offering Jesus as the solution to the country's social problems Kingdom Coming offers the powerful testimony of "regular" Americans to illustrate the subversive effect of this conservative stranglehold nationwide, and it urgently requires us to turn our attention to the mechanisms of an insidious fundamentalism opposed to science, pluralism, and reason.
