9781469606873: No Sympathy for the Devil: Christian Pop Music and the Transformation of American Evangelicalism

In this cultural history of evangelical Christianity and popular music, David Stowe demonstrates how mainstream rock of the 1960s and 1970s has influenced conservative evangelical Christianity through the development of Christian pop music. The chart-topping, spiritually inflected music created a space in popular culture for talk of Jesus, God, and Christianity, thus lessening for baby boomers and their children the stigma associated with religion while helping to fill churches and create new modes of worship. Stowe shows how evangelicals' increasing acceptance of Christian pop music ultimately has reinforced a variety of conservative cultural, economic, theological, and political messages.

Book Description:

"David Stowe's No Sympathy for the Devil is a much-needed and highly engaging study of Christian rock. Expertly researched and elegantly written, Stowe not only adds texture to this misunderstood music, he also helps us understand the cultural and political resonance this music has had with American evangelicals, as well as its place in the broader world of post-1960s religious pop. An important achievement by one of our leading authorities on American religion and music."--Jason C. Bivins, author of Religion of Fear: The Politics of Horror in Conservative Evangelicalism

From the Inside Flap:
