about

During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Christians carried on an intense debate concerning the doctrine of prayer. This ideological revolution affected not only the ways that they interpreted the Bible but also how they prayed. In this book, Rick Ostrander explores the attempts ofAmerican Christians to articulate a convincing and satisfying ethic of prayer amidst these changing circumstances.
Rick Ostrander is at John Brown University.
