       1950 saw the height of the postwar religious boom in the U.S. and also the depths of the Cold War; it was a year when religious enthusiasm and postwar affluence coexisted with anxiety about global communism and the ever-present threat of nuclear war. McCarthysim, the nascent civil rights movement, the increasing prominence of Jewish thinkers in American intellectual life, the advent of the hydrogen bomb, and the onset of the Korean War all provoked ardent-and diverse-responses from religious leaders and occasioned lively debate in the flourishing field of religious journalism. This book will serve as a cultural 'time capsule,' recovering trends, news items, endings, beginnings, and other developements in American religious life fifty years ago. The book concludes with glances toward the 50's and 60's and with attention to the parallels and divergences between religious culture then and now.
