(p.1) Introduction
God's Businessmen

Much like George Babbitt, then, Herbert Taylor, R. G. LeTourneau, and their cohort of deep-pocketed powerbrokers faced the disruptions of their day by holding tightly to the conformities, and shared faith in Christ and capitalism, that profoundly shaped their church environment between WWI and the Cold War. As in Zenith, so to in Peoria, Chicago, and emerging commercial centers across middle America: these resident corporate evangelicals’ entry into the theological and economic revolutions of the local produced real and lasting political change, and the nation felt (and continues to feel) the effects.

Keywords:   Conservatism, Entrepreneurialism, Evangelicalism, Herbert Taylor, LeTourneau
