Randy Attwoodabout this book: This is a Christian dystopia set in 2084. Politically, the religious right has succeeded in controlling America. There is now a Pastor President and pastor governors and they rule with a Bible in each fist and the computer in your hovel. Its set in Topeka where the economy is dominated by building the largest church in America. The starts from the point of view of a stone mason working on that cathedral and we are introduced to his family. His oldest son has an amazing memory for Bible verses and will become the redemption element in this story. In this economy you either work for the Church of the Evangels or make do as best you can in Rabbletown.
