In the absence of a state-supported religion, the years 1820-60 saw tremendous expansion and influence of the Evangelicals in the United States. Johnson ( Islands of Holiness , Cornell Univ. Pr., 1989) discusses the many ways in which these Evangelical sects attempted to shape American society. Generally drawn along socioeconomic lines, there were three major groups: Formalists (Congregationalists, Presbyterians), Antiformalists (Methodists, Baptists), and the African American groupings. Johnson discusses in serviceable but tedious prose how these groups varied in their beliefs on biblical authority, rebirth, the Second Coming, and Perfectionism. Slavery also divided Southern from Northern Evangelicals. By the time of the Civil War, changes in American society had altered the character and composition of the Evangelicals, and they were never again as powerful. For collections specializing in American religious history.-- Deborah Owen, Fairview Heights P.L., Ill.

Explores the impact of evangelical Protestantism on antebellum American culture, synthesizing much of the scholarship on this topic that has been produced over several decades. The study examines five theological ideas that evangelicals upheld with great seriousness and discusses how these ideas were interpreted by middle- to upper-class whites, lower- to middle-class whites, and African Americans.
