More from the Scary Book.
America is not lost. It is better to say the United States, as a whole, is lost; the GAE [Global American Empire] has captured it. But parts of America are certainly not lost. Hundreds of counties in the United States have a majority of conservative Christians, as do several states. … [W]e should organize and support Christian political visions for towns, counties, and states. In many places, our success or failure is not a matter of numbers but of whether we have the will for success.
Many claims in this book will worry American conservative Christians. I’ve said that political governments can suppress false religion, establish a church, even require people to attend church. I also wrote about a “Christian prince,” which is not the sort of title one would find in America. I will not walk back these arguments; I affirm my conclusions as good and true principles. But I have demonstrated that Christian nationalism can and should look different in different places, for all principles are applied according to a concrete situation. One application that is righteous in itself is not necessarily suitable for all situations. The means by which a Christian people achieve their good depend on their identity, their experiences, and their way of life.Ibid, pp. 474 – 475 (Epilogue)

The title isn’t scary–belief in God and country–and it has a good Amazon rating. The picture makes it look very old, but it was just published late last year.

It scared a lot of people. They assume it’s Handmaid’s Tale or something. 🙂
I looked again at the Amazon reviews and see that a lot of people reacted negatively to the book. Maybe ‘scared’ as you say.
