In this special edition, Lizz Winstead and KC Boyd discuss KC's new novel novel Being Christian.
The book tells the story of a larger-than-life, yet familiar, character from his crime-ridden beginnings to the peak of his political influence in post-9/11 America.
Not since Elmer Gantry has a novel so exposed the religious flim-flammery and hypocrisy that threaten to tear apart the American social and political fabric. Being Christian is a quintessentially American story, based on the ideologies and personalities that make the news every day with their challenges to the Constitutional religious/political divide.
LIzz and KC make several references to C Street. See Jeff Sharlet's C Street for more.
