The Twentieth-Century Reformation Movement
This chapter reassesses the separatist fundamentalist movement from 1936 to 1945. It starts with an examination of McIntire’s creation of the Bible Presbyterian Church, his Christian Beacon newspaper and his radio ministry. Covered next is the creation of the American Council of Christian Churches and this group’s World War II era engagement with public affairs. Major themes covered include conservative faith-based opposition to the New Deal and to communism, but the chapter also includes new documentation on the ways in which McIntire led the way in differentiating the fundamentalists from the 1930s’ antisemitic Far Right and the America First Committee’s isolationists.
