Summary
"In a small Oregon town, American criminal history reached a tipping point when a series of sensational trials exposed the darkest side of American fundamentalism. Over the past decades, thousands of children had died at the hands of their own parents--legally. Local authorities knew why it was happening, and who was responsible--but did nothing--because faith-based neglect was not a crime. In the Name of God tells the story of how police, prosecutors, and a lone church member triumphed over religious zealotry. Though the fight against faith healing continues around the country, the triumph in Oregon shows a path towards a better future, in which no child needs to die for the sake of a parent's faith"--
Summary
This riveting true story, centering around the deadly tradition of faith healing and religious zealotry, follows the battle in the state of Oregon to end faith-based neglect, which, over the past decade, resulted in the deaths of thousands of children
