A Mighty Baptism: Race, Gender, and the Creation of American Protestantism (Book Title)


Program Description:

A Mighty Baptism is the first book to address the intersecting roles of race and gender in shaping the Protestant tradition in the United States. Ranging from the 1790s to the 1920s, these interdisciplinary essays cover the entire terrain of American Protestantism, from mainstream denominations to sectarian offshoots to the spiritual borderlands of magic and the occult.
