Christian Nation: A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


“They said what they would do, and we did not listen. Then they did what they said they would do.”
So ends the first chapter of this brilliantly readable counterfactual novel, reminding us that America’s Christian fundamentalists have been consistently clear about their vision for a "Christian Nation" and dead serious about acquiring the political power to achieve it. When President McCain dies and Sarah Palin becomes president, the reader, along with the nation, stumbles down a terrifyingly credible path toward theocracy, realizing too late that the Christian right meant precisely what it said.
In the spirit of Philip Roth’s The Plot Against America, one of America’s foremost lawyers lays out in chilling detail what such a future might look like: constitutional protections dismantled; all aspects of life dominated by an authoritarian law called “The Blessing,” enforced by a totally integrated digital world known as the "Purity Web." Readers will find themselves haunted by the questions the narrator struggles to answer in this fictional memoir: "What happened, why did it happen, how could it have happened?"

Customer Reviews

Christian Nation

A must read for anyone in government service or thinking about becoming a public servant.

Christian Nation

While a little heavy handed in the approach, during and after reading this novel you find yourself saying..."that is far-fetched, that would never happen, do I really think that is plausible." And thats exactly the point of the book. Read and decide for yourself. It certainly made me think twice and turned my "political radar" up a notch.

Christian Nation

Prescient, scary, horrifying.....realistic?
Christian Nation is eerily close to where we are headed. "W" bridged the gap between Church and State with every bumbling speech he made and forced "his" God into every corner of America. Let's hope this is a truly fictional account of what's to come.......
