about

An Uncommon Christian seeks to show how and why James Brainerd Taylor (1801-1829) became a popular participant during America's Second Great Awakening, and why the Princeton graduate and Yale Seminary student grew to be a frequent example of evangelical Protestant spirituality and evangelistic passion long after his untimely death.
