This research depicts many of the ideological practices that construct the Promise Keepers movement, while concurrently investigating the fundamentals of their belief system. The first chapter addresses the practices involved in the making, or socialization, of a Promise Keeper; the second details the Promise Keepers organization and its founder, Bill McCartney, as social evangelicals rather than part of the Christian Right. The third reading employs the notion of social capital to analyze the practice of promise keeping. The fourth chapter discusses the importance of a stable male (masculine) identity. The dissertation concludes with a series of observations from the PK Stand in the Gap assembly held in October of 1997. Each chapter provides a perspective of the Promise Keepers, none of which attempts to totalize, but each one mapping various aspects of the movement
