Gloria Gaither and Homecoming Intraevangelicalism

The Gaithers and Southern Gospel

University Press of Mississippi

Chapter four focuses on Gloria Gaither, the principal lyricist in the Gaither duo and the chief scriptwriter for most Homecoming videos and products. Gloria is a monumental yet marginal presence in the Homecoming world, as are her theological contributions. The chapter explores how Gloria—as woman, as artist—simultaneously expands and fortifies the boundaries of Homecoming evangelicalism and theology—primarily through her careful augmentations of conservative evangelical tropes.
