God's Own Party

The Making of the Christian Right

Daniel K. Williams

  • ''The best general study of the Religious Right.'' --Church History
  • ''Williams...does as well as any writer to date in answering the basic questions of what went into making up the religious right.'' --The New Republic
  • ''Thoroughly researched and engagingly written...God's Own Party should serve as the standard history of the latest Protestant Right for the foreseeable future.'' --Journal of American History
  • ''A wonderfully thorough account of the Christian Right...A bright example of sound methodology, clear and concise prose, and rigorous analysis. Based on years of painstaking research in a multitude of periodicals, personal and political papers, and organizational records, God's Own Party effectively transports the reader through time, charting the development of Christian right-wing activism over the course of ninety years.'' --Journal of Southern Religion
