About the Author

A Canadian, David Hopewell is a novelist and quondam street-corner jazz-guitarist who holds a Ph.D. in literature from Dalhousie University. In preparing this book, he had to plow through the entire Christian Bible, read stunning numbers of mind-numbing pages in Fundamentalist publications, and subject his nervous system to hours of stupefying broadcasts produced by aggressive marketing agents of the Ignorance Industry. Fortunately, he has survived these ordeals to produce a book that is a major contribution to the study of that worrisome phenomenon Christian Fundamentalism, showing that those who are drawn to its vortex are embarking upon A Journey Into The Heart Of Darkness.
