Daniel K. Williams. God's Own Party : the making of the Christian right. Oxford University Press, 2010. BR1642.U5W535 2010

 

The conventional wisdom has been that the Christian Right arose in response to Roe v. Wade and the liberal government policies of the 1970s.  This book demonstrates that The Christian Right goes back much farther than most journalists, political scientists, and historians realize. Relying on extensive archival and primary source research, the author presents the first comprehensive history of the Christian Right, uncovering how evangelicals came to see the Republican Party as the vehicle through which they could reclaim America as a Christian nation.
