We Gather Together: The Religious Right and the Problem of Interfaith Politics

It is by now widely accepted that the second half of the 20th century witnessed a realignment of religious politics in the United States. In particular, many scholars have written about an interfaith alliance of religious conservatives working to bridge their disagreements and build a winning political coalition. Despite maintaining strong theological quarrels, these co-belligerents came together in defense of moral values held in common. But a recent book challenges this history.

In his We Gather Together: The Religious Right and the Problem of Interfaith Politics, historian and Past Present Podcast co-host Neil J. Young documents more than five decades of interfaith division, observing attempts at conservative alliance that ultimately failed to span the gaps between. In his telling, though traditionalist evangelicals, Catholics, and Mormons did hold important political views in common, these were ultimately unable to surmount the high doctrinal barriers that held them apart.
