The Age of Evangelicalism: America's Born Again Years

reviewed by John Murdock
A decade ago, President George W. Bush was re-elected, and a baffled media establishment (no one they knew had voted for him) explained that the blame lay with "values voters," who were in turn happy to take the credit. Today, deep into Barack Obama's second term and in the midst of a social moment that we might well call the Gay Teens, plenty of journalists are beginning to gleefully type up their obituaries for the religious right. While these reports of death may be greatly exaggerated, the roller coaster that has been conservative white Evangelical politics does find itself at a place prime for introspection.
