This groundbreaking book from Pulitzer Prize–winning historian Frances FitzGerald is the first to tell the powerful, dramatic story of the Evangelical movement in America—from the Puritan era to the 2016 presidential election.
What FitzGerald has given us with this book is a lens through which to see the invisible thread that runs across American history. This invisible thread is the story of the evangelicals, and it runs south to north, east to west, across slavery and abolitionism, across the women’s rights movements, across labor laws and the labor movement, and all the way into our present and future cultural wars around immigration, the economy, and the environment. And, thanks to The Evangelicals we realize this thread is not invisible at all but is so evident we often fail to see it.
