  • Evangelical Does Not Equal Republican or Democrat

    Sert Kapak
    A leader of the new generation of progressive evangelicals reclaims her faith from partisan politics, in this book in the acclaimed "Does Not Equal" series. "To let the religious right define evangelical...wipes out the memory of real people who lived and fought for just causes and just social policies because of their faith....I refuse to let the religious right confiscate my heritage."—from Evangelical Does Not Equal Republican...Or Democrat A new breed of evangelicals, with a fiery passion for economic justice, racial reconciliation, and care for the environment, has abandoned the religious right. Lisa Sharon Harper, a rising star in this movement, describes the roots of this political shift, the agents of change driving it, and, in interviews with leaders across the political spectrum, the extent of the evangelical rejection of the right-wing political agenda. In Evangelical Does Not Equal Republican...Or Democrat, Harper lays out a manifesto for the new progressive evangelical movement, drawing inspiration from the biblical concepts of shalom and the kingdom of God, as well as from historical predecessors such as William Wilberforce, Sojourner Truth, and John Perkins. Harper offers a powerful indictment of the religious right, of its role in hijacking evangelical passion and dividing Christians against each other, and—in an agenda that is racist and sexist to the core—of its abandonment of the gospel. She shows how evangelicals, in disengaging from partisan politics, can reclaim their roots and become a new moral voice for the nation.

    Karton Kapak
    A faith that changed history: this is the story of William Wilberforce's struggle to abolish the Slave Trade and reform the morals of Great Britain. In God's Politician, Garth Lean provides an insightful and stirring account of how Wilberforce and his colleagues in the "Clapham circle" put their faith into action and changed the course of history. Their legacy was one of far-reaching moral renewal as well as testimony to the power of the individual to effect change in his world. Foreword by Charles W. Colson

  • Millennial Dreams and Apocalyptic Nightmares: The Cold War Origins of Political Evangelicalism

    Millennial Dreams and Apocalyptic Nightmares: The Cold War Origins of Political Evangelicalism

    Sert Kapak
    The Religious Right came to prominence in the early 1980s, but it was born during the early Cold War. Evangelical leaders like Billy Graham, driven by a fierce opposition to communism, led evangelicals out of the political wilderness they'd inhabited since the Scopes trial and into a much more active engagement with the important issues of the day. How did the conservative evangelical culture move into the political mainstream? Angela Lahr seeks to answer this important question. She shows how evangelicals, who had felt marginalized by American culture, drew upon their eschatological belief in the Second Coming of Christ and a subsequent glorious millennium to find common cause with more mainstream Americans who also feared a a 'soon-coming end,' albeit from nuclear war.In the early postwar climate of nuclear fear and anticommunism, the apocalyptic eschatology of premillennial dispensationalism embraced by many evangelicals meshed very well with the "secular apocalyptic" mood of a society equally terrified of the Bomb and of communism. She argues that the development of the bomb, the creation of the state of Israel, and the Cuban Missile Crisis combined with evangelical end-times theology to shape conservative evangelical political identity and to influence secular views. Millennial beliefs influenced evangelical interpretation of these events, repeatedly energized evangelical efforts, and helped evangelicals view themselves and be viewed by others as a vital and legitimate segment of American culture, even when it raised its voice in sharp criticism of aspects of that culture. Conservative Protestants were able to take advantage of this situation to carve out a new space for their subculture within the national arena. The greater legitimacy that evangelicals gained in the early Cold War provided the foundation of a power-base in the national political culture that the religious right would draw on in the late seventies and early eighties. The result, she demonstrates, was the alliance of religious and political conservatives that holds power today.
