Overview

Jack Garrison (Garry) Griffith, Jr.'s book researches the print press' coverage of four 20th century evangelical movements - the Jesus People, Moral Majority, Christian Coalition, and Promise Keepers. Griffith applies textual analysis to four major newspapers - The New York Times; L.A. Times; Chicago Tribune; and Washington Post. He applies the same methodology to three major newsweeklies - Newsweek, Time, and U.S.News & World Report. Finally, he concludes his analysis with three 'Christian' magazines - Christianity Today, Commonweal, and the Christian Century.

This is a seminal study regarding the print press' coverage of these four evangelical movements and provides the groundwork for future research. Coming from a journalistic, historical, and faith perspective, intertwined with a veneer of humor, Griffith's book is well research and documented. It is an easy read for the scholar, the seeker, and the wise.

From Hollywood to Jerry Falwell, Griffith's book substantiates the symbiotic, yet dependent relationship, between the print press and these four evangelical movements. This book appeals to a wide populace ranging from the person who considers themselves steeped in their faith to the non-churched person who revels in history. It will particularly be a valuable addition to the pastor, the lay person, or the old hippie who loves Jesus.
