Book Description Temple University Press,U.S., United States, 2000. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The beach has always been the place to shake off the stresses of urban life, and to relax with friends and family. And yet, as Troy Messenger shows, the beach has been a site for religious revival for as long as it's been a haven from the workday world. In this history of Ocean Grove, New Jersey, the first permanent camp meeting ground for religious revival, Messenger examines how the emergence of the beach appeared hand-in-hand with America's need to escape the secular world of work through leisure and religious renewal.
