God’s Profits:
Faith, Fraud, and the Republican Crusade for Values Voters

By Sarah Posner

ISBN: 978-0-9794822-1-2

$19.95, hard cover

Keenly observed and meticulously reported, God’s Profits examines the unholy alliance between a new breed of corrupt televangelists and the Republican Party, which is eagerly courting “values voters” in the nation’s largest megachurches.

Author Sarah Posner exposes the activities of Kenneth Copeland, John Hagee, Rod Parsley, T.D. Jakes, and other politically connected, skillfully marketed, and increasingly influential religious leader s. Preaching the “prosperity gospel”—the notion that faith and tithing alone can ensure financial security—both in their churches and over the airwaves, these charismatic leaders scam the gullible even as they enjoy unprecedented access to top Bush Administration officials.

Admired by Republican strategists for their antigovernment ideology and authoritarian leadership styles, these televangelists work together to maximize profits; protect themselves legally; influence elections, judicial nominations, and legislation; and promote their pro-war, apocalyptic ideas about the Middle East and its critical role in the “End Time.”
