About the e-book:

A web page turner…We have lengthy wanted a fair-minded overview of this vitally vital non secular sensibility, and FitzGerald has now supplied it.” —The New York Times Book Review “Massively realized and electrifying…magisterial.” —The Christian Science Monitor This groundbreaking ebook from Pulitzer Prize–profitable historian Frances FitzGerald is the primary to inform the highly effective, dramatic story of the Evangelical motion in America—from the Puritan period to the 2016 presidential election. The evangelical motion started within the revivals of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, recognized in America because the Great Awakenings. A populist revolt in opposition to the established church buildings, it turned the dominant non secular power within the nation. During the nineteenth century white evangelicals cut up aside dramatically, first North versus South, after which on the finish of the century, modernist versus fundamentalist. After World War II, Billy Graham, the revivalist preacher, attracted monumental crowds and tried to collect all Protestants beneath his massive tent, however the civil rights motion and the social revolution of the sixties drove them aside once more. By the 1980s Jerry Falwell and different southern televangelists, equivalent to Pat Robertson, had fashioned the Christian proper. Protesting abortion and homosexual rights, they led the South into the Republican Party, and for thirty-five years they have been the only real voice of evangelicals to be heard nationally.

Evangelicals have in some ways outlined the nation. They have formed our tradition and our politics. Frances FitGerald’s narrative of this distinctively American motion is a serious work of historical past, piecing collectively the centuries-long story for the primary time. Evangelicals now represent twenty-five % of the American inhabitants, however they’re not monolithic of their politics. They vary from Tea Party supporters to social reformers. Still, with the decline of non secular religion typically, FitzGerald means that evangelical church buildings should embrace ethnic minorities if they’re to survive.
