A fascinating new look at a little understood but crucial side of Sarah Palin: her Pentecostal roots. A perfectly timed analysis where Butler, a noted religious scholar, trains her keen eye on the reigious and political currents that have been widely caricatured but, until now, poorly understood. Butler shows that Palin's widely publicised fumbles and verbal gaffes are irrelevant to her commited core of extreme Evangelical followers, who believe in miracles and apocalyptic patriotism. For many of her followers, religion is everything.
