about

In this book, twelve historians examine the nature of the American Protestant establishment and its response to the growing pluralism of this century. The authors conclude that the period surveyed forms a distinct epoch in the evolution of American Protestantism. The days when Protestant cultural authority could be taken for granted were over, but a new era in which religious pluralism would be widely accepted had not yet arrived.

Editorial Reviews

"The central themes which emerge are critical to understanding what happened to American mainstream Protestant churches in the twentieth century and their future...The essays offer a fascinating kaleidoscope of perspectives on aspects of this Protestant establishment and its `travail' in maintaining authority...Facile generalizations about the importance of the 1960s will have to be modified by these thoughful reassessments of the Protestant establishment at its zenith."
