Synopsis:

In the mid-twentieth century, far more evangelicals supported such “liberal” causes as peace, social justice, and environmental protection. Only gradually did the conservative evangelical faction win dominance, allying with the Republican Party of Ronald Reagan and, eventually, George W. Bush.
    In Countercultural Conservatives Axel Schäfer traces the evolution of a diffuse and pluralistic movement into the political force of the New Christian Right. In forging its complex theological and political identity, evangelicalism did not simply reject the ideas of 1960s counterculture, Schäfer argues. For all their strict Biblicism and uncompromising morality, evangelicals absorbed and extended key aspects of the countercultural worldview.
    Carefully examining evangelicalism’s internal dynamics, fissures, and coalitions, this book offers an intriguing reinterpretation of the most important development in American religion and politics since World War II.

About the Author:

Axel R. Schäfer is director of the David Bruce Centre for American Studies at Keele University, UK, and author of American Progressives and German Social Reform, 1875–1920.

Book Description University of Wisconsin Press, Madison, 2011. Softcover. Condition: New. 264 pages. Softcover. New book. RELIGION. Today Christian evangelicals appear to form a solid conservative blocÑbut it was not always so. In the mid-twentieth century, far more evangelicals supported such "liberal" causes as peace, social justice, and environmental protection. Only gradually did the conservative evangelical faction win dominance, allying with the Republican Party of Ronald Reagan and, eventually, George W. Bush. In Countercultural Conservatives, Axel SchŠfer traces the evolution of a diffuse and pluralistic movement into the political force of the New Christian Right. In forging its complex theological and political identity, evangelicalism did not simply reject the ideas of 1960s counterculture, SchŠfer argues. For all their strict Biblicism and uncompromising morality, evangelicals absorbed and extended key aspects of the countercultural worldview. Carefully examining evangelicalism's internal dynamics, fissures, and coalitions, this book offers an intriguing reinterpretation of the most important development in American religion and politics since World War II. Axel R. SchŠfer is director of the David Bruce Centre for American Studies at Keele University, UK, and author of American Progressives and German Social Reform, 1875-1920. "A compelling history of evangelical politics from the early 1940s to the late 1990s. SchŠfer's ability to show how the Christian Right combines traditional moral convictions with modern consumerism, as well as his careful discussion of continuities from postwar suburbanization through post-1960s right-wing activism, makes his book a landmark contribution. This one is a gem." ÑMark A. Noll, author of God and Race in American Politics: A Short History (Key Words: Evangelicals, Religion, 1960s, Axel R. SchŠfer, Second Vatican Council, Politics, United States History, Religious Movements, Evangelicalism). Studies in American Thought and Culture Series. book. Seller Inventory # 81665X1
