The New Crusaders : Christianity and the Far Right in Southern Africa
This is an examination of the roots of evangelical Christianity and the role it has played in supporting the cause of the American New Right. The author traces the influence of evangelical movements from their US bases through to the Philippines, Latin America and through to southern Africa. Taking Zimbabwe as a case study, he points at the natural alignment that they form with the political right through their shared ideals - an assumed morality, a crusade against godless communism and defence of Christian values. The author concludes that, far from offering salvation to the peoples of these developing countries, evangelical Christians have more commonly worked to further oppression and inequality.
