In the last 70 years, Christianity has been hijacked and weaponized by an alliance between religious fundamentalists and political reactionaries. That dangerous alliance can only be stopped if critical thinkers in every tradition reach out and speak up in defense of moral values that all of us cherish. In a series of nimble, tightly focused arguments, I name the moral and intellectual failures of Christian fundamentalism. I sketch the cultural backstory of these mistakes. And then, issue by issue, I lay out relevant aspects of an alternative valued by Christian humanists and secular humanists alike: the moral imagination. I tell a lot of stories to keep everything accessible and down to earth: these are little books that anyone can read in a couple of evenings.
