More About The Teavangelicals by David Brody
 
 
 
Overview

Belonging neither to red states nor blue states, the Tea Party movement erupted onto the national scene with a mission to reclaim America. In the span of one election season, the Tea Party gained popularity and notoriety seen only a few times in our nation s history. At this pivotal point in our development as a nation, the Tea Party has come to represent individual freedom and the American spirit. Committed to values and integrity and aligned with most social conservatives, the Tea Party found a partnership in the evangelical movement, drawing in Christians from all corners of conservatism. Now, these Teavangelicals are poised to draw a line in the sand. In his trademark, award-winning journalistic style, author David Brody introduces Americans to the history, issues, and main players of the Teavangelical movement. Through powerful and engaging stories Brody reveals the scope and magnitude of the movement and how Teavangelicals aim to restore the American Dream to its original glory."

The chief political correspondent for Pat Robertson’s CBN News has written a breezy account of the relationship between the Tea Party movement and evangelical Christianity. This volume repeats the trite slogan that fiscal responsibility is a moral issue; hence Tea Party enthusiasts and evangelicals are a natural match. Libertarians and Ayn Rand aficionados who surely complicate this easy alliance are paid insufficient attention. The book lists key figures and organizations, offering brief summaries of each. In a rare concession, Brody writes that evangelicals “operate in a world of biblical absolutes” that is “colored in blacks and whites and not many shades of grey.” Yet for the most part, Brody champions the marriage as an inevitable progression, following the tradition of the Moral Majority and the Christian Coalition. There is little original reporting here. A more critical analysis awaits a future writer. (An estimated one-third of the book is missing from early review copies; missing chapters contain time-sensitive embargoed material.) (July)
