Backed by a live choir, The Christians is both epic and intimate, an unflinching look at faith in America — and its power to unite or divide.

Be not deceived: The devil is lurking at the Christian Puppet Ministry in Cypress, Texas. And his name is…Tyrone.

Called "a message to thinking Americans" upon its publication, this eerily prescient book receives a new adaptation just in time for election season.
