about

Between 1820 and 1860, American social reformers invited all people to identify God's image in the victims of war, slavery, and addiction. Identifying the Image of God traces the theme of identification--and its liberal Christian roots--through the literature of social reform, focusing onsentimental novels, temperance tales, and slave narratives, and invites contemporary activists to revive the "politics of identification."
Dan McKanan is Assistant Professor of Theology at St. John's University and College of Saint Benedict in Minnesota.
