Unvanquished Puritan: A Portrait of Lyman Beecher

Unvanquished Puritan: A Portrait of Lyman Beecher

by Stuart C. Henry




Here is a portrait of a fascinating and influential figure, a study that provides new insights into an important era of American religious history. Frequent quotations from contemporary chronicles and Beecher's own prodigious writings enhance the flavor or the era, and Professor Henry has included several short essays on culture and religion which further illumine both the man and his times. An appendix contains short biographical sketches of the eleven Beecher children who lived beyond childhood.
