Conservative movements were far more progressive than the standard religious narrative of the decade alleges and the notoriously progressive ethos of the era was far more conservative than our collective memory has recognized. Lints explores how the themes of protest and retrieval intersect each other in ironic ways in the significant concrete controversies of the 1960s - the Civil Rights Movement, Second Feminist Movement, The Jesus Movements, and the Anti-War Movements - and in the conceptual conflicts of ideas during the era - The Death of God Movement, the end of ideology controversy, and the death of foundationalism.

Lints argues that religion and religious ideologies serve both a prophetic function as well as a domesticating one, and that neither conservative nor progressive movements have cornered the market in either direction. In the process Lints helps us better understand the complex role of religion in cultural formation.
