book with post apocalyptic/religious tone
Hi! I checked out a book at a local library in Virginia in the early-mid ninties that began with a leader of a small band of christian militants that were charging into a village with cavalry. they were armed with 1 bullet each for 10 men. when they got into the village they began raiding it and they considered the people in the village to be atheists and a character "habakkuk" was introduced. a machine gunner begins to shoot down all of the leaders men and he begins to remember learning about how in the past before the apocalypse there were such things as cars, computers, and other technological advances that were no longer available.
I have looked through many science fiction websites and lists of books but I cant find this book anywhere. I would really, really appreciate your help if you could give me the author or the title of it, please.
