(Sharlet 2008) The Family: the secret fundamentalism at the heart of American power


Sharlet, Jeff. The Family: the secret fundamentalism at the heart of American power. New York: HarperCollins; 2008.

Sharlet documents the ties of “The Family”, a formerly little-known religious group, to influential individuals and groups in U.S. government and business. He exposes their motto “Jesus plus nothing” as concealing—perhaps even from their own conscious awareness—a devotion to the cult of pure power: “Jesus plus nothing equals power” (page 256). A disturbing book.
