Jesus and the Culture Wars: Reclaiming the Lord's Prayer is an in-depth look at the cultural unrest of Christ's time and now. From the radical feminization of our nation's boys to unholy alliances with militant Islam, American mainline denominations are leading the charge. They aren't the only ones on the wrong side of the culture wars, though. So were the Pharisees. What does it really mean to pray with Jesus 'Hallowed be Thy Name' or 'Lead Us not into Temptation' in a religious context as politically charged as the one we face today? Jesus and the Culture Wars offers a fresh perspective on the Lord's Prayer and a call to Christians everywhere to reclaim it from the religious authorities who have taken it hostage. Visit www.revcjconner.com to talk about Jesus and the Culture Wars 'Nothing could be more counter-cultural, and therefore imperative, than unwrapping each petition of the Lord's Prayer, one of the most powerful weapons in the Christian arsenal against post-modern and other errors. CJ Conner has accomplished this feat admirably.' Dr. Uwe Siemon-Netto, Ph.D., D.Litt. Concordia Seminary Institute on Lay Vocation, St. Louis

I have not finished reading the entire book yet, however, I am very grateful to the author for bringing to light the appalling behavior of the ELCA Lutheran bishops in recent years when it comes to their cover ups of child abuse, and in my family's case, also attempted murder. My family had the misfortune of running into a psychopathic ELCA pastor who covered up the sexual abuse of my small child, by lying to doctors, and having them misdiagnose and poison me - what a subsequent Methodist pastor was kind enough to explain was "the dirty little secret of the two original educated professions." I have been dealing with an ongoing cover up, by the ELCA Chicago synod offices, of the crimes committed against my family by that ELCA pastor since 2006 - and, ironically, I even have medical proof the evil people I dealt with, actually blasphemed against the Holy Spirit, the only eternal sin in the Holy Bible. I absolutely agree, there is evil within the ELCA, and it goes all the way to the top. Thank you, C. J. Conner, for bringing this to the public's attention.
