About-

“Fake News! That’s Fake News!”



In a few short years, the phrase “Fake News” has earned a place in dictionaries, in national discourse, and in our daily lives. But Fake News is not new. Fake News began when people first interpreted the Bible to advance their own agenda. Commonly-held beliefs about what the Bible says regarding women, LGBTQ folks, slavery, immigrants, and Jews trumpets Fake News that is destroying people’s lives.



What is the best way to counter Fake News? With the truth. To do so, Episcopal priest Elizabeth Geitz turns to the #1 bestselling book year after year—the Bible. Sexism, racism, anti-Semitism, and heterosexism are experiencing an alarming resurgence today. It is time for an accessible book that sets the record straight on what the Bible really says regarding the many “isms” affecting all of us. It is time for the Fake News about the Bible to come to a screeching halt.



The 101 eye-opening reflections in Spiritual Truth in the Age of Fake News are a call to action for people of different faiths or no faith at all. This a must-read for anyone exhausted by the daily barrage of Fake News who is seeking the relief of the authentic.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Elizabeth Geitz pulls no punches as she calls us to move beyond the many ‘isms’ that plague our culture today, to read the Scriptures with eyes wide open, and to commit ourselves again to loving all our neighbors with no exceptions.”

—Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church



“In this important book, Elizabeth Geitz speaks truth to power—the power of biblical tradition. She introduces us to heroines and spiritual guides who contradict the image of subservience women have accepted for centuries. Any woman of any faith can find strength and inspiration—and hope—in the citations she has assembled to tell our true story.”

—Suzanne Braun Levine, First Editor of Ms. Magazine, author of Inventing the Rest of Our Lives: Women in Second Adulthood



“In her penetrating and highly readable critique, Elizabeth Geitz laments the distortions of a weaponized Scripture—passages cherry-picked, quoted out of context, falsely interpreted, or simply omitted in order to promote a spiritually corrupt agenda. She offers readers a series of reflections as a path to arriving at the truth.”

—John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
