“Few writers can pull off investigative journalism, historical research, and elegant storytelling. Sharlet does all this with a story that a lot of people don’t want to hear and others won’t believe.” (Diane Winston, author of Red-Hot and Righteous: The Urban Religion of The Salvation Army )
“[Sharlet] writes with insight, verve, and, thankfully, none of the bogus punditry and bad sociology that often passes for informed discourse about the contemporary role of religion in public life. His refreshing narrative style is as engaging as his groundbreaking information.” (Frederick Clarkson, The Public Eye )
“Un-American theocrats can only fool patriotic American democrats when there aren’t critics like Jeff Sharlet around-careful scholars and soulful writers who understand both the majesty of faith and the evil of its abuses.” (Rick Perlstein, author of Nixonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America )
