Conceived in Doubt
Full Product Description
Evangelicals managed and manipulated doubt, reaching out to disenfranchised citizens as well as to those seeking political influence, blaming religious skeptics for immorality and social distress, and demanding affirmation of biblical authority as the foundation of the new American national identity. Porterfield demolishes the idea that evangelical growth in the early republic was the cheerful product of enthusiasm for democracy, and she creates for us a very different narrative of influence and ideals in the young republic.
Conceived in Doubt by Amanda Porterfield was published by The University of Chicago Press in May 2015. The ISBN for Conceived in Doubt is 9780226271965.
