View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The essays collected in The Evangelical Tradition in America range over a vast plain of historical inquiry. Yet they are linked by a common purpose and vision of the exploration through ever-widening avenues of research into one of the most important movements in American culture, and the uncovering of forgotten, ill-conceived, or half-perceived features of the Evangelical tradition. This volume opens up new territory, recharts the old, and challenges and corrects several gaps in the historical topography of American Evangelicalism.Emerging from the Charles G. Finney Historical Conference at Colgate Rochester Divinity School/Bexley Hall/Crozer Theological Seminary in October 1981, these essays offer exciting interdisciplinary insights into the role of Evangelical religion in American society. As major contributions to scholarship in American religion, these investigations forge beyond the borders of Evangelicalism's role in issues now being explored by many American historians on the South, blacks, women, urban centers, millennialism, and organizational structures. They also provide directions from which to view Evangelicalism's impact on American history from the perspective of Southern popular religion, the psychological aspects of black evangelicalism, the stream of intellectual history, and the Enlightenment and evangelical roots of millenarian ideology.
