Onward Christian Soldiers?

They have money, influence, power--and they turn out to vote.  "They" are groups like Focus on the Family, Family Research Council, and Concerned Women for America--all parts of the Christian Right.  But, are they a serious threat to religious liberty, bent on creating a theocratic state, or the last defenders of religion and family values in America?

Bringing the story of the religious right up to the Obama administration, this revised fourth edition explores the history of the movement in twentieth and early twenty-first century American politics. The authors review the expansion of the Christian Right through George W. Bush’s second administration and evaluate how the religious right fared in the 2006 and 2008 elections. Although figureheads of the religious right remain in the news, their power in Washington may be declining, and the authors consider the fate of the religious right under the Obama administration. Examining how the religious right both does and does not fit into the proper role of religious groups in American politics, Onward Christian Soldiers? is an essential addition to the Dilemmas in American Politics series.
