Summary

Author Sarah Posner exposes the activities of Kenneth Copeland, John Hagee, Rod Parsley, T.D. Jakes, and other politically connected, skillfully marketed, and increasingly influential religious leaders. Preaching the "prosperity gospel"--the notion that faith and tithing alone can ensure financial security--both in their churches and over the airwaves, these charismatic leaders scammed the gullible even as they enjoyed unprecedented access to top Bush Administration officials. Admired by Republican strategists for their antigovernment ideology and authoritarian leadership styles, these televangelists work together to maximize profits; protect themselves legally; influence elections, judicial nominations, and legislation; and promote their pro-war, apocalyptic ideas.
