The Way of Improvement Leads Home are very familiar with the historiography of American evangelicalism so I am turning to you for some book suggestions. I am particularly interested in history (as opposed to theology or political science or sociology) books about evangelicalism and I would also like books that translate well to an undergraduate audience. I am also open to novels about American evangelicalism.
Here are a few books that I am seriously considering:
Harry Stout, The Divine Dramatist: George Whitefield and the Rise of Modern Evangelicalism
Catherine Brekus, Sarah Osborn's World: The Rise of Evangelical Christianity in Early America
Nathan Hatch, The Democratization of American Christianity
Molly Worthen, Apostles of Reason: The Crisis of Authority in American Evangelicalism
David Swartz, Moral Minority: The Evangelical Left in an Age of Conservatism
I am looking for something good on African-American evangelicalism (in any period). I have a few things in mind, but I am not sure how accessible they will be to an undergraduate audience.
I am open to any and all suggestions. Thanks!
