Yes, this book could have been cut down by eliminating much of the repetitve language and examples, but I have also discovered that my children won't listen to me unless I repeat myself over and over.
This book is a scathing indictment of the current political climate. Righties hate this book because it calls them hypocrites for professing God's support but not implementing God's policies. Lefties hate this book because it calls them to task for claiming to support the poor and the working class, but not really doing anything for either, all the while being ashamed of God.
The main premise of this book as I read it is "Don't be ashamed of God, and prove your faith by supporting policies that are in tune with ALL of God's will, not just the ones that you like."
Read it for what it is, the words of a real Christian who is frustrated with the current climate. If you allow yourself to listen to his arguments rather than to have a knee-jerk "hate it" response, you might surprise yourself by changing your mind on a few things.
I tried multiple times, but this book never caught me up into the story. Very slow. If there is a payoff at the end, I will never get it, because it is too painful to get to that point.
