I have frequently criticized "Christian publisher" Thomas Nelson, its Westbow Press pay-to-publish operation and paranoid/hypocritical/lying boss Michael Hyatt.
I am not alone in my scorn for Hyatt's sleaze.
NPR has just broadcast and published an extensive analysis of The Jefferson Lies, written by David Barton, "The Most Influential Evangelist You've Never Heard Of."
Barton's book has a foreword written by right-wing nutso Glenn Beck and aims to change public opinion about President Thomas Jefferson. Barton tries to 'correct' commonly believed 'lies' about Jefferson being anti-religion and pro-slavery.
However, the book has been condemned by both historians and religious leaders as full of lies -- which makes it perfect for Hyatt and Nelson.

If anyone at Nelson would like to defend the book, I'll be glad to publish the defense here.
