Standing on Guard for Thee
Standing on Guard for Thee: The Past, Present and Future of Canada's Christian Right is Dr. Michael Wagner's ground breaking history on Canadian Christians' influence over the political landscape of Canada. Many Canadians, including some Canadian Christians have the impression that the "Christian Right" in Canada is an American import. Dr. Wagner's excellent book, reveals that such a conclusion is separated from the facts. Christian influence is foundational to the creation of Canada as a nation and has continued to the present. Wagner's book was first published in 2005 but has since been updated. A wonderful and insightful history of Canadian Christian activism and Canadian heritage.
