Publisher's Summary

In 2009, the Good News Club came to the public elementary school where journalist Katherine Stewart sent her children. The Club, which is sponsored by the Child Evangelism Fellowship, bills itself as an after-school program of "Bible study."
But Stewart soon discovered that the Club's real mission is to convert children to fundamentalist Christianity and encourage them to proselytize to their "unchurched" peers, all the while promoting the natural but false impression among the children that its activities are endorsed by the school.
Astonished to discover that the U.S. Supreme Court has deemed this - and other forms of religious activity in public schools - legal, Stewart set off on an investigative journey to dozens of cities and towns across the nation to document the impact. In this book she demonstrates that there is more religion in America's public schools today than there has been for the past 100 years. The movement driving this agenda is stealthy. It is aggressive. It has our children in its sights. And its ultimate aim is to destroy the system of public education as we know it.

Exposes the hidden agenda against education.

Would you listen to The Good News Club again? Why?

Yes, I am going to have to. The author presented so much information of which I was unaware that I am going to have to go back to re-engage with the details.

What other book might you compare The Good News Club to and why?

Taking Liberties, by Robert Boston

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

I knew of the Good News club and I'm also well aware of the Religious Right's desire to undermine and eventually end public education. I just never knew how deeply rooted and insidious their effort are.

Any additional comments?

Every person interested in helping to maintain Jefferson's "wall of separation" should read this book in detail. Our secular public education system is failing terribly and our children are not being properly educated and this book details a big part of why that is.
