Jesus and Gin

Full Product Description

Jesus and Gin is a rollicking tour of the roaring twenties and the barn- burning preachers who led the temperance movement-the anti-abortion crusade of the Jazz Age. Along the way, we meet a host of colorful characters: a Baptist minister who commits adultery in the White House; media star preachers caught in massive scandals; a presidential election hinging on a religious issue; and fundamentalists and liberals slugging it out in the culture war of the day. The religious roar of that decade was a prologue to the last three decades. With the religious right in disarray today after its long ascendancy, Jesus and Gin is a timely look at a parallel age when preachers held sway and politicians answered to the pulpit.

Jesus and Gin by Barry Hankins was published by Palgrave Macmillan in August 2010. The ISBN for Jesus and Gin is 9780230614192.
