Smith, Timothy L.  
Revivalism and Social Reform in Mid-Nineteenth-Century America

Publisher: New York & Nashville: Abingdon Press, 1957..
First Edition. 23½ X 16 cm. Near Fine/VG. Brown cloth, foil-on-black titles on spine, 253 pp, footnotes, bibliography, index. Slight wear to spine ends. DJ has a 4 cm tear with creasing, a few small (under 1 cm) tears & chips, corners of flaps trimmed, original bookseller's sticker on front panel; in Brodart archival cover. This is an expansion of the Brewer Prize Essay for 1955. From the DJ: "The evangelists of this period played a vital role in preparing the way for the attack on slavery, poverty, and greed. It was the quest for perfection, together with moving compassion for poor and needy sinners and a rebirth of millenial expectations, that joined to make popular Protestantism a mighty social force long before the conflict over slavery burst into flame. Otherworldly attitudes contributed to temporal causes in such proportion that the religious historian examining this new evidence will conclude, as does Dr. Smith, that revivalism and holiness in the mid-19th century plowed the ground from which the social gospel was to grow." Shipping weight 2 lbs.
