On July 1, 2006, the PPC published Christian Faith and the Truth
Behind 9/11: A Call to Reflection and Action, a book by David Ray
Griffin . The book argues that "The Bush-Cheney administration...
orchestrated 9/11 in order to promote this empire under the pretext of
the so-called war on terror." The book echoes other 9/11 conspiracy
theories in claiming that the Bush administration used explosives to
destroy the World Trade Center , and adds a theological argument that
United States is an "evil, even demonic empire" comparable to the
Roman Empire . PPC President Davis Perkins claimed that the book's
arguments "merit careful consideration by serious-minded Christians
and Americans concerned with truth and the meaning of their faith."
Publication of this book aroused criticism of the PPC and the PC(USA)
leadership by church members and clergy.
