(p.201) Epilogue
Making the Bible Belt

Joseph Locke

Oxford University Press

The epilogue looks forward from the triumph of prohibition in Texas and the American South by exploring the rise of fundamentalism, the growth of the Ku Klux Klan, and the spread of a “Texas theology” across the nation. When white southerners poured out of the region during the remainder of the early twentieth century and settled especially in the Midwest and ever-rising West, they carried the clerical culture with them. Fundamentalist leaders such as J. Frank Norris and Robert Shuler exported the South’s fighting faith, normalized religious politics, championed a new hard-line theology, and laid the early groundwork for the coming rise of the religious right.

Keywords:   J. Frank Norris, Robert Shuler, Texas religion, southern religion, Ku Klux Klan, fundamentalism, Bible Belt, religious right
