After nearly half a century in exile, American Evangelicals and Fundamentalists have returned to the political arena. This conservative religious tradition is having a significant if controversial influence on public life and has become a force to be reckoned with. "Piety and Politics" includes a wide range of perspectives of this growing religious and political development. Carl F.H. Henry, Nathan Glazer, Jerry Falwell, George F. Will, George Marsden, Ronald Nash, Charles Colson, George Weigel, Ronald Sider, Martin Marty, James D. Hunter, William J. Bennett, Sidney Blumenthal, William F. Buckley, and Grant Wacker are among the twenty-six contributors to this collection.
