Satan in America tells the story of America's complicated relationship with the devil. "New light" evangelists of the eighteenth century, enslaved African Americans, demagogic politicians, and modern American film-makers have used the devil to damn their enemies, explain the nature of evil and injustice, mount social crusades, construct a national identity, and express anxiety about matters as diverse as the threat of war to the dangers of deviant sexuality. The idea of the monstrous and the bizarre providing cultural metaphors that interact with historical change is not new. Poole takes a new tack by examining this idea in conjunction with the concerns of American religious history. The book shows that both the range and the scope of American religiousness made theological evil an especially potent symbol. Satan appears repeatedly on the political, religious, and cultural landscape of the United States, a shadow self to the sunny image of American progress and idealism.

ÊThe belief in a good and evil influence has existed from the earliest ages, in every nation having a religion. The Egyptians had theirÊTypho, the Assyrians theirÊTi-a-matÊ(the Serpent), the Hebrews theirBeelzebub, orÊPrince of Flies,Êand the Scandinavians theirÊLoki. And many religions teach that the evil influence has a stronger hold upon mankind than the good influenceÑso great, indeed, as to nullify it in a large degree. Christianity especially teaches this: ÔEnter ye by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many be they that enter in thereby. For narrow is the gate, and straitened the way, that leadeth unto life, and few be they that find it.Õ This doctrine of the great power of the Devil, or evilÊinfluence over man, is preached from every pulpit, under every form of Christianity, throughout the world; and although at the present time it is only confined to the greaterÊmoralÊpower of the Devil over man, at an earlier period it was an article of belief that he was able to exercise a greaterÊphysicalÊpower. This was coincident with a belief in his personality; and it is only in modern times that that personality takes an alluring form. In the olden days the Devil was always depicted as ugly and repulsive as the artist could represent him, and yet he could have learned a great deal from the modern Chinese and Japanese. The Ôgreat God Pan,Õ although he was dead, was resuscitated in order to furnish a type for Ôthe Prince of DarknessÕ; and, accordingly, he was portrayed with horns, tail and cloven feet, making him an animal, according to aÊmotÊattributed to Cuvier, Ôgraminivorous, and decidedly ruminantÕ; while, to complete his classicalÊensemble, he was invested with the forked sceptre of Pluto, only supplemented with another tine.

This balanced and comprehensive study of Christian conservative thinking focuses on the 1980s, when the New Christian Right appeared suddenly as an influential force on the American political scene, only to fade from the spotlight toward the end of the decade. In Redeeming America, Michael Lienesch identifies a cyclical redemptive pattern in the New Christian Right's approach to politics, and he argues that the movement is certain to emerge again. Lienesch explores in detail the writings of a wide range of Christian conservatives, including Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Phyllis Schlafly, and Tim and Beverly LaHaye, in order to illuminate the beliefs and ideas on which the movement is based. Depicting the thinking of these writers as a set of concentric circles beginning with the self and moving outward to include the family, the economy, the polity, and the world, Lienesch finds shared themes as well as contradictions and tensions. He also uncovers a complex but persistent pattern of thought that inspires periodic attempts to redeem America, alternating with more inward-looking intervals of personal piety.
