America and Its Guns:A Theological Exposé
and
Gundamentalism and Where It Is Taking America
by Rev. James E. Atwood
(available at amazon and other booksellers)


Note: The late Rev. Atwood was an inspirational
force behind the formation of God Before Guns. Besides being an author, he was a Presbyterian pastor, a gun owner and member of the NRA, and ultimately a board member of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. His presentation at Forest Hill Presbyterian Church, Cleveland in 2013 led to the birth of our organization.
