First, a bit about the writing itself and the Kindle version. This book is long, very long, and at some points I think a bit more editing could have pared it down somewhat and removed redundancy.

This book made me so mad. Not mad at the author--mad at the forces he was exposing to me.

Nor did I comprehend fully their final goal--to basically create a Calvinistic world. Yes, that's WORLD, not state.

Lest you think I'm overreacting, the book indicts the Religious Right with their own words.

You must read this book. It is written in a popular form and well organized. It explains Dominionism and its' dangers of by attempting to mix church with state, which so far, has been very successful.
