Rhetoric of Operation Rescue
Full Product Description
Steiner examines how the group sought to persuade people - primarily conservative evangelical and fundamentalist Christians - to join their ranks, as well as how they sought to use their form of social protest to achieve their public policy goals. In so doing, Steiner explains both the group's initial success (beginning with its 1988 "Siege of Atlanta" protests) and its ultimate failure.
More fundamentally, though, Steiner shows how the group appealed to the convictions of conservative evangelical and fundamentalist Christians in the United States. He shows how the rhetoric of Operation Rescue - for those conservative evangelicals and fundamentalists that found it convincing - shaped fundamental understandings of what their Christian faith means, how to practice it in an authentic manner, and how to engage in public dialogue and political activism.
