Contents New England sets a pattern -- Taking aim at Europe and the Middle Ages -- Northern evangelicals define the other -- Southern evangelical dilemmas -- The hierarchy responds to political Protestantism -- Epilogue: evangelicals, the Bible, and politics
Note W. Jason Wallace examines sermons, books, newspaper articles, and private correspondence of members of three antebellum groups--northern evangelicals, southern evangelicals, and Catholics--and argues that the divisions among them stemmed, at least in part, from disagreements over the role that religious convictions played in a free society. --from publisher descriptioin
