Overview

Many believe that American Protestantism has long been divided into two groups: those concerned with the impact of religion in the public sphere and those concerned with private faith, individual morality, and personal evangelism. Douglas Strong provides examples of people over the last 150 years who bridged the apparent chasm between these two groups and were able to nurture a deep personal piety while simultaneously working to transform society.
