Jamie’s Rating    

You've seen them them picketing the funerals of soldiers holding signs that boldly proclaim "GOD HATES FAGS, but what goes on at Westboro Baptist Church when the news cameras aren't rolling? Rebecca Barret-Fox, a professor of sociology at Arkansas State University, provides "[t]he first full ethnography of this infamous presence on America's Religious Right, her book situates the church's story in the context of American religous history—and reveals as much about the uneasy state of Christian practice in our day as it does about the workings of the Wesboro Church and Fred Phelps, it's founder" (from Goodreads).
