Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Timothy Miller's well-documented biography of Charles M. Sheldon richly illumines a fascinating chapter in American religious history as it tells the story of a flamboyant reformer and crusader, prolific inspirational author, and beloved parish minister." —Robert T. Handy, Union Theological Seminary. 

"A vivid picture of the spirit of the man, of his times, and of contemporary church life."—Winthrop S. Hudson, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill 

". . . he [Miller] also reveals Sheldon as a tireless crusader; a rare bridge between the worlds of the Christian Social Gospel and more conventional, almost conservative, pietism; and an American original."
The Christian Century.  

"An impressive, readable, and vivid account of Dr. Sheldon's life, as fascinating as a novel, yet meticulous in scholarship. This volume is highly commended: don't miss it." —Congregational Journal
