Cookiesue9x An excellent ,fascinating look at Southern Fundamental Religion (and I might add picking and choosing just which parts of the Bible to be literal about). We are talking snake -handling and drinking poison here, as proof of being right with Jesus.Adultry and multiple marriage and divorce seem to be O.K or at least acceptable.
Reads at times like Flannery O'Connor (one of the church's is called "Church of Jesus Christ with Signs Following" The Covington book , however is non-fiction.
He (Covington) even falls under the spell of the sect himself, for a while.
