This chapter discusses how contemporary changes in Protestantism are starting to affect U.S. foreign policy. The growing influence of evangelicals has affected U.S. foreign policy in several ways; two issues in particular illustrate the resultant changes. On the question of humanitarian and human rights policies, evangelical leadership is altering priorities and methods while increasing overall support for both foreign aid and the defense of human rights. And on the question of Israel, rising evangelical power has deepened U.S. support for the Jewish state, even as the liberal Christian establishment has distanced itself from Jerusalem.

Keywords:   Protestantism, U.S. foreign policy, religion, Israel, liberal Christian establishment, evangelicals, humanitarianism, human rights
