About this title


Examines the religious right through the eyes of the movement's leaders, including Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and Jim and Tammy Bakker


Why has the fundamentalist Christian viewpoint struck such a resonant chord in so many Americans today? Walter Capps provides the reader with an understanding of the New Religious Right as seen through the eyes of the leaders of the movement -- Jerry Falwell, Francis Schaeffer, Bob Jones, Pat Robertson, and Jim and Tammy Baker. In portraying the intentions and performance of these leaders, Capp's objective is neither to condemn nor confirm, but to assess what the movement may mean and to place it in a larger sociopolitical and religious framework. Capps explores this "counter-cultural" movement to discover if it is becoming ever more centralist and acceptable in American society. Capps effectively takes the reader into the minds of these "Christian" leaders in a way that honestly represents their thinking in theological terms. His narrative accounts are based on interviews and on his journeys to the regions of the country where the movement was born. While he attempts to recreate the sense of immediacy in these encounters with the principals, it is always from the perspective of a contemporary theologian. This makes for a fascinating and unique analysis of a controversial subject right out of today's headlines. The information for The New Religious Right: Piety, Patriotism, and Politics was derived from Capps' travel and interviews in the area, and direct contact with new religious right leadership. -- Midwest Book Review
