In this brilliant and enlightening book, James M. Ault, Jr., initiates his readers into the world of a fundamentalist church. Ault, an independent Harvard-trained sociologist living in Northampton, Massachusetts, spent three years immersed as a participant-observant with the Shawmut River Baptist Church (he changed the name to protect identities) in Massachusetts in an effort to understand New Right politics and the churches behind it. He first chronicled the congregation's life in the public television documentary Born Again (1987); Spirit and Flesh serves as his "field notes," filled with analysis and a narrative that often surprises and always engages.
