   schema:description ""God in the Corridors of Power: Christian Conservatives, the Media, and Politics in America offers a multifaceted understanding of Christian conservative activists in politics today. Authors Michael Ryan and Les Switzer argue that the astonishing electoral successes of Christian conservatives at all levels of government was made possible, not only by a coalition of political interests, but also because of an emerging consensus on what constitutes a conservative mindset in America. Ryan and Switzer further maintain that religious conservatives would not have succeeded as well as they have without their ownership of and/or influence over commercial, as well as noncommercial media, to disseminate their ideas and attitudes." "In the course of its analysis, this book frames the history, theology, and social dynamics of Christian conservatism in the context of changes in America's economy and society over the past century. Using case studies throughout, it profiles the impact of Christian conservative personalities and issues on the media, explores the meaning of political conservatism, and profiles the conservative mindset in America. It also examines the limits of Christian conservative power in America's political culture and demonstrates the ways in which Christian conservative activists gain and exercise political power." --Book Jacket."@en ;
