Caesar Ate My Jesus
A Baby Boomer’s Reflection on Spirituality in the American Empire
Imprint: Resource Publications
"Concise but intellectually challenging, Caesar Ate My Jesus explores the blurry lines of religion and politics, and of power and justice. Its eloquent prose reveals an exceptional breadth of historical, theological, and philosophical insights into the existential contradictions of the American boomers, convinced that they had a God-given mission to dominate the world, as they were losing their soul doing just so. A must-read, especially now, when more than ever, we need to speak truth to power."
--Sophie Clavier, San Francisco State University
"In a passionate exploration of 'what the hell happened' to the idealistic vision of America's place in the world once shared by our Baby Boomer generation, Meg Gorzycki offers an unsparing analysis of the hypocrisy of divorcing political conduct from ethical values. This deeply personal, in-depth study, like James W. Douglass's JFK and the Unspeakable, provides an enlightening path out of the abyss for believers and nonbelievers alike by reconnecting history with spiritual values."
--Joseph McBride, author of Into the Nightmare: My Search for the Killers of President John F. Kennedy and Offiicer J. D. Tippit
"A sobering account of an American Boomer's coming to realize that the 'America the Beautiful' of her youth has slowly but inexorably become myth. [This book] should be required reading for all serious students of American social, cultural, and political thought and practice."
--Don McLeod, St. Joseph's College, University of Alberta
