"The author examines the contradictions of fundamentalism as they appear in prophecy, sermon, film and fiction, including work by Gore Vidal, Peter Matthiessen, Thom Jones, Alison Lurie and Pete Dexter. He shows, in an original reading, how scripture, race and politics have combined in the conservative opposition to the Clinton presidency in the writings of influential figures such as Pat Robertson, Salem Kirban and Hal Lindsey. Clinton's failure, in this view, had less to do with sexual depravity than his abandonment as a Southern Methodist of the Church's evangelising mission, so essential in fundamentalist belief to the advent of the millennium."--BOOK JACKET." ;
