Editorial Reviews

Fudge (history, U. of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand) situates the story of preacher Daniel Warner and the Church of God movement within the larger narrative of 19th-century American Protestantism, focusing less on Warner himself than on the tensions involved in the struggle between history and the myths that religious movements often create around their founders. In particular, the study addresses the paradoxical development of religious democracy alongside the emergence of religious leaders who felt they represented divine truth and who used democratic principles to advance their own vision of God's kingdom. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
