Whereas evangelicals in the early Cold War were able to better integrate into the dominant culture, the United States became more and more divided in the aftermath of the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War. Evangelical conservatives increasingly embraced “morality politics” as part of the New Christian Right. At the same time, an emerging evangelical left adopted a different kind of prophecy that called on Christians to push for social justice.
