Title Details

Running Time
51 Min.


Fitzgerald made her name with her now classic Fire in the Lake, which won both the Pulitzer and the National Book Award and is still considered one of the best accounts of the Vietnam War. Her sixth book chronicles the social and political roles of Evangelicals in America. Now constituting twenty-five percent of the American population, Evangelicals have helped shape the country since the Puritans, though they became a dominant force only with the Great Awakenings of the nineteenth century. A populist rebellion centered in revivals, the movement split along North-South lines with the Civil War, then into modernist-fundamentalist factions. Preachers like Billy Graham worked to unite the groups, but the turbulent 1960s divided them further.
