    "Power, Faith, and Fantasy..." is extremely well written, and researched. Rarely have I read a history so full of dates, names, and historical background that is so interesting. I did not want to put the book down. Even though I encountered some of the events and people in history class, in other reading, and through news reports, I constantly learned something new. The only mild criticism of the book is that the writer often makes no distinction between professing Christians or Christians by faith, or even between Christians and cults, and makes little distinction between America as a "Christian Nation" and a nation influenced by Christian people and values. This may have been beyond Oren's scope and may have lengthened the book and detracted from the flow. But I think the author has the skill and insight to have pulled this off. You might want to have a dictionary at hand as you read.
