Fascinating book well worth reading.
As a practicing Christian and a republican I have a long wondered how the party of limited government became the party of big government when it comes to religion. This book is the story of how this occurred.
The book is well written and far from being the cure for insomnia. The narrator is also excellent with his intonation and impersonations.
For further background I would suggest God of Liberty: by Thomas S Kidd. This book fills in the historical gaps and is also excellent.

I was interested in the origins and history of how religion has become so intertwined with government and politics. I found the author substantiated the thesis early on. While I appreciate the importance in documenting the facts to substantiate the thesis, I found the level of detail to be painful to the point of redundancy. Tried and tried, but just couldn't keep slogging through the minutiae level of substantiation to enjoy the historical points. If you LOVE detail, i.e. endless quotes and examples (all making the same point), you may enjoy this. Good history lesson, unfortunately weighed down to the point of drowning.
The narration was well-done. Too bad it was this book.
