The Gaithers and Southern Gospel

Ryan P. Harper

University Press of Mississippi

The first chapter focuses on the first decade of the Homecoming franchise. The first Homecomings occur against the backdrop of late 1980s/early 1990s American politics, economics, evangelicalism, and mass entertainment. It is through these early videos that the Gaithers must establish the trust of an audience often alienated by televangelism and other subgenres of contemporary Christian music.

Keywords:   Televangelism, Gospel, American evangelicalism, Bill Gaither, Religion and Memory
