What does it mean when a band is judged by how hard they pray rather than how hard they rock? Would Jesus buy "Jesus junk" or wear "witness wear"? What do Christian skate parks, raves, and romance novels say about evangelicalism -- and America? Daniel Radosh went searching for the answers and reached some surprising conclusions. Written with the perfect blend of amusement and respect,Rapture Ready!is an insightful, entertaining, and deeply weird journey through the often hidden world of Christian pop culture. This vast and influential subculture -- a $7 billion industry and growing -- can no longer be ignored by those who want to understand the social, spiritual, and political aspirations of evangelical Christians. In eighteen cities and towns throughout thirteen states -- from the Bible Belt to the outskirts of Hollywood -- Radosh encounters a fascinating cast of characters, including Bibleman, the Caped Christian; Rob Adonis, the founder and star of Ultimate Christian Wrestling; Ken Ham, the nation's leading prophet of creationism; and Jay Bakker, the son of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, and pastor of his own liberal, punk rock church. From Christian music festivals and theme parks to Passion plays and comedy nights, Radosh combines gonzo reporting with a keen eye for detail and just the right touch of wit.Rapture Ready!is a revealing survey of a parallel universe and a unique perspective on one of America's most important social movements.

In the beginning
As goods increase, so do those who consume them
The new Jerusalem
He will act deceitfully
To each province in its own script and to each people in its own language
For many will come in my name, claiming, "I am he," and, "The time is near"
And books were opened
Children will see it and be joyful
How awesome is the Lord
For their rock is not like our rock
Celebrate a festival to the Lord
Let them praise his name with dancing
Our mouths were filled with laughter
Give me a man and let us fight each other
Let a search be made for beautiful young virgins
Train the younger women to love their husbands
The opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge
Their visions are false and their divinations a lie
