Sinclair Lewis: Elmer Gantry

Posted by Backyard Urban Gardening on Tuesday, February 26, 2008

A novel published 80-years ago is still creating a stir this week. I haven't read Elmer Gantry by Sinclair Lewis, but I'm going to add it to my list of planned purchases at my favorite bookseller.

Elmer Gantry is a satirical novel that explored religion and those that choose to use religion to exploit others. published an article that summarizes the problem for Christians. National Public Radio also featured a piece about Elmer Gantry earlier this week. weighed in as well with this additional article online to remind us all that the movie version of the novel was awarded 3 Oscars in 1961.
