批評家のレビュー

"Christians Against Christianity hits hard. Really hard. But it is also measured, thoughtful, reasoned, and carefully presented. The style is concise and evidence-based, with research on evangelical leadership, statements and polled positions of right-wing evangelicals, and serious biblical scholarship."
—Los Angeles Review of Books

“[Hendricks’] most recent book, Christians Against Christianity, is a sustained critique of a group he refers to as ‘faux Christians’: right-wing, white evangelicals. With scholarly precision and an ability to engage beyond the tired critiques of right-wing Christianity, Hendricks imagines a version of Christianity that is politically committed to social justice.” —Sojourner Magazine

“The distinguished scholar and prophetic social critic Obery Hendricks has done it again: he has written a brilliant and heartfelt defense of the Christian gospel that indicts the fakes and frauds who distort it! This book, standing in the great tradition of Martin Luther King Jr., is just what is needed in these decadent times.” —Cornel West, author of Race Matters

あらすじ・解説

A timely and galvanizing work that examines how right-wing evangelical Christians have veered from an admirable faith to a pernicious, destructive ideology.

Today’s right-wing Evangelical Christianity stands as the very antithesis of the message of Jesus Christ. In his new book, Christians Against Christianity, best-selling author and religious scholar Obery M. Hendricks Jr. challenges right-wing evangelicals on the terrain of their own religious claims, exposing the falsehoods, contradictions, and misuses of the Bible that are embedded in their rabid homophobia, their poorly veiled racism and demonizing of immigrants and Muslims, and their ungodly alliance with big business against the interests of American workers.

He scathingly indicts the religious leaders who helped facilitate the rise of the notoriously unchristian Donald Trump, likening them to the “court jesters” and hypocritical priestly sycophants of bygone eras who unquestioningly supported their sovereigns’ every act, no matter how hateful or destructive to those they were supposed to serve.

In the wake of the deadly insurrectionist attack on the US Capitol, Christians Against Christianity is a clarion call to stand up to the hypocrisy of the evangelical Right, as well as a guide for Christians to return their faith to the life-affirming message that Jesus brought and died for. What Hendricks offers is a provocative diagnosis, an urgent warning that right-wing evangelicals’ aspirations for Christian nationalist supremacy are a looming threat, not only to Christian decency but to democracy itself. What they offer to America is anything but good news.

Same As Right Only Left

I listen to this book to try to find more unity between the far left and far right. The passion of the author comes out as he demonizes all those who believe in capitalism and democracy. His strong belief in Socialism over- rides and blinds his eyes to the corruptions of the very thing he praises.
He does an excellent job revealing the non-Christian views of the professing evangelicals concerning politics. He then does the very same thing and cherry picks verses to support a political Jesus which never existed.
I would only recommend this book for those who are not on the far left or the far right as a learning tool to see how a man with such a vast biblical background can be swayed by the enemy and be judged as he has judged others he disagrees with.

The book is very informative and goes very in-depth concerning his belief that Jesus wants men to have their own dignity instead of being crucified with Christ.

In a word of caution this book can cause more division in the body of Christ.

As Powerful A Book Ever Written

This book is well written, well researched, and well performed. Dr. Hendricks’ prose give a look into the inner working of Christianity in the present and historically. It give context the moral dilemmas of modern Christian Conservatism. It’s also enjoyable to read.

A very well-done exposition. Hurray!

This is my first time exposed to Rev Dr Hendricks' work. I am so grateful for his careful scholarship and well-constructed lines of argument. If only there was a way to strap down Trumpers and let them engage their brains and consciences with accurate, in-depth scriptural interpretation such as is offered here.

The author definitely took some liberties

I can agree with the premise that is written on the cover of this book on the idea that there are many right wing evangelicals who do not properly represent Christianity. This book reads more like an anti-Trump book though than it does a theological breakdown of the ideals that are counter to sound biblical teaching. If the book had a different title, then I might have been able to expect what I got as far as the authors views of the right wing political candidates and the main stream pastors that support them. While the author is Princeton educated, he definitely takes some exegetical liberties, or outright decides to ignore the meaning of certain scriptures. I would still recommend this book to some of my far right leaning friends so that they might have a different point of view to wrestle with compared to what they already believe. There’s always a danger in a book written like this for there to be bias towards what one has a conviction about. I would just expect less of it in a book that is written to promote the true message of the gospel.

Enlightening reading

This book was fantastic - well researched and articulate that challenges the ‘noise’ of many voices using Christianity for what until ultimately causes harm in so many ways - thank you
