How Rich Businessmen Tried To Steal Jesus

The much-touted NYU historian Kim Phillips-Fein did an interesting diavlog with Jane Hamsher on Monday about her new book, Invisible Hands, which traces the history of the conservative movement back to the Depression and the early postwar era. I found this discussion of how the wealthy industrial class seized on Christianity as a way to beat back threats to their economic interests especially useful.
