This chapter explores the strategies that Conservative Protestant (evangelical) men utilize to negotiate secular concerns and sacred convictions in the context of their marriage and family relationships. The narratives of domestic life, told by conservative religious husbands and fathers, reveal that these men do not conform to the authoritarian gender model of male household leadership that one would assume corresponds with a patriarchal faith. Rather, this study underscores the dynamism, flexibility, and negotiated character of conservative Protestant family relationships.
