Examines the ambivalent career of Machen (1881-1937) who emerged as America's most articulate spokesman for traditional Christianity in the early 20th century, but whose opposition to prohibition and championing of civil rights made him the darling of the very secular intellectuals that his congregations railed against. A final chapter notes his lingering influence in fundamentalist Christianity today. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
