WHEN Daniel Radosh needed to find a publisher for "Rapture Ready!" - about the pop culture of the religious right - it probably didn't hurt that Frank McCourt, author of mega-selling "Angela's Ashes," had taught him English during his 30 years in New York's public schools. Radosh - who writes for Radar, The Week and The New Yorker - and his agent, David Kuhn, sold the book to Scribner editor-in-chief Nan Graham, who edits McCourt. Maybe it wasn't a coincidence.
