Rev. Barry Lynn, Executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State The God Strategy is a sobering look at just how deeply imbedded religion has become in the contemporary American political psyche. Both the person of faith and the non-believer should fear what is revealed in this carefully crafted review of modern campaign strategies to 'get the God vote'. Domke and Coe demonstrate, with stunningly clear examples, just how the union of government and religion tends to degrade the integrity of both.

Ron Reagan The God Strategy offers an intriguing look at what has become one of the most powerful shaping forces in American political life.
