About-

Apart from God alone, in what do Americans seek meaning, identity, self-worth, and justification? With devastating simplicity, this inquiry into contemporary idolatry probes a range of subjects: religion, race, work, money, status, patriotism, and even the church. All this in a concise, readable primer. In the end, William Stringfellow's biblical sensibility parts the curtain to expose the impostor behind the impostors,
death itself.

"The conscientious and thoughtful New York attorney who caught my attention more than any other person."
-- Karl Barth on William Stringfellow

"Once and again, here is Stringfellow blurring the distinction between prophet and exorcist. Impostors is a basic theological tract with urgent political import, driving into the open a small legion of idolatries which
plague us yet."
-- Bill Wylie-Kellermann
