From the Publisher"A virtual taxonomy of religious publishing in nineteenth-century America, revealing its significance for comprehending the social history and material culture of the era."
— Journal of Interdisciplinary History
"Brown shows how a 19th-century evangelical print community developed textual practices to use the Word of the Bible and printed words of their own to create a sanctified life and, in the process, to transform American culture."
"The Word in the World makes a very substantial contribution toward answering important historical and cultural questions about nineteenth-century popular American culture. It is a pioneering effort, worthy of the most serious attention, both for its grasp of what Protestants published in that era and how those publications reflected (and shaped) the culture of the time."
