Revival in Our Time

Show Summary Details

Preview

The postwar religious revival was much more widespread and general in its scope than could be attributed to the fundamentalist-led evangelical coalition, but its efforts added new active ingredients to the postwar social and religious cauldron. Discussion of the postwar revival has concentrated mostly on possible changes in the public climate that might have been reflected in an increase in religious demand. The infusion of a fresh supply of religious products is an important part of the equation as well. Whether or not Americans' demand for religious identification and expression was growing, the aggressive marketing of evangelical Protestantism attracted many and seemed to raise the general level of interest in religion.
