This book examines the relationship between conservative Protestants and social power in the U.S. The book, which is particularly concerned with which sorts of power relationships were made to seem natural and which were not, is based on fieldwork in three Philadelphia churches: Oak Grove Church, Philadelphia Mennonite Fellowship, and the Philadelphia Church of Christ. The fieldwork was conducted in the early 1990s.

Keywords: 1990s; conservative Protestants; fieldwork; natural; Philadelphia; social power
