Summary

A faith-based policy governed key features of the American invasion of Iraq, including the choice of a self-defeating Shock and Awe strategy, and a grossly mismanaged occupation. A religious rationale likewise blinded devotees of the White House torture program to the predictable cost in American lives, and the damage to Americas moral standing. The Bush Administration embraced an imperialist Christian militarism that unites elements of classic Puritan tradition with the mythology of the Western frontier. Faith-Based War brings into focus this dangerous perversion of Christian teaching, and details its catastrophic results.
