Description: Jesus and Ginis a rollicking tour of the roaring twenties and the barn- burning preachers who led the temperance movementthe anti-abortion crusade of the Jazz Age. Along the way, we meet a host of colorful characters: a Baptist minister who commits adultery in the White House; media star preachers caught in massive scandals; a presidential election hinging on a religious issue; and fundamentalists and liberals slugging it out in the culture war of the day. The religious roar of that decade was a prologue to the last three decades. With the religious right in disarray today after its long ascendancy,Jesus and Ginis a timely look at a parallel age when preachers held sway and politicians answered to the pulpit.
