About the Author

Curtis D. Johnson is Chair and Associate Professor of History at Mount St. Mary's University. He is the author of Redeeming America: Evangelicals and the Road to Civil War and Islands of Holiness: Rural Religion in Upstate New York, 1790-1860.


"This book is an ambitious, original interpretation of antebellum evangelicalism. The author seeks to remedy two large mistakes in current historiography: a neglect of rural experience and an overemphasis upon sociological to the detriment of 'ideological' factors. The correction is provided by a case study, offering attention to theological changes, of rural Congregational, Presbyterian, Baptist, and Methodist congregations in Cortland County in western New York (the 'burned-over' district) from 1790 to 1860... It is essential reading for students of the period."-Choice
