Summary "America was founded, we're taught in school, by the Pilgrims and other Puritans escaping religious persecution in Europe--an austere and pious lot who established a culture that remained pure and uncorrupted until the Industrial Revolution got in the way. InThe Money Cult, Chris Lehmann reveals that we have it backward: American capitalism has always been entangled with religion, and so today's megapastors, for example, aren't an aberration--they're as American as Benjamin Franklin. "-- Dust jacket flap.
