Summary
"In One Nation Under God, award-winning historian Kevin M. Kruse argues that the story of Christian America begins with the Great Depression, when a coalition of businessmen and religious leaders united in opposition to the New Deal. As Kruse shows, corporations from General Motors and Kraft Foods to J.C. Penney and Hilton Hotels, poured money into the coffers of conservative religious leaders, who in turn used those funds to attack FDR's New Deal administration as a program of "pagan statism" that perverted the central tenet of Christianity: the salvation of the individual"--
Summary
Looks at the idea of America as a formally Christian nation, arguing that this view of the country largely started as an initiative by conservative religious leaders and businesses reacting against the New Deal, which became entangled with politics in the 1950s under Eisenhower
