Sleeping Giant Has Awoken

Full Product Description

American politic conservatism in the past decade and especially in the 2000 and 2004 campaigns marked the convergence between American political conservatism and Christian evangelicalism with an effectiveness not seen before in national elections. This saw both political conservatism, and Christian evangelicalism triumph. This collection of articles addresses the nexus between political conservatism, evangelical Christianity, and American consumerist culture. It explores the religious seeds for this convergence and the potential dangers that it presents to the concepts of religion, politic and America.
