From Billy Graham and Ronald Regan to Newt Gingrich and William Bennett, God is a Conservative provides an important look at the role of religion in conservative politics in modern America. Kenneth J. Heineman reveals the profoundly religious nature of contemporary conservatism, offering an intriguing look at the social history of moral politics over the last three decades, and the still tremulous aftershocks of the New Deal. With a new Preface that examines the Bush presidency, including a provocative analysis of his re-election, and the rising influence of the Conservative Right, God is a Conservative is essential reading for understanding today's American political landscape.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Heineman's writing style is lively and engaging. The chief merit of the book is its display of the deep divisions between liberals and conservatives that are at work in both parties."
-Journal of the American Academy of Religion


"Objective and analytical, written in a lively, nonacademic style, God Is a Conservative will be . . . interesting to anyone with a passion for Contemporary American politics."
-CHOICE


"In this excellent and readable examination of current conservative politics, Heineman traces the political history of the past 30 years, placing special emphasis on the role of religious and social conservatism."
