A Controversial Spirit

Evangelical Awakenings in the South

Philip N. Mulder

Religion in America

Mulder examines the internal dynamics of evangelicalism to dispel the illusion that early evangelicals constituted a united front. Researching formal doctrinal statements, worship and rituals, he provides a far more nuanced portrait of southern evangelicals than previously available, revealing the deep differences between denominations that the homogenization of religious history has until now obscured.
