The First American Evangelical

Full Product Description

Cotton Mather (1663-1728) was America's most famous pastor and scholar at the beginning of the eighteenth century. People today generally associate him with the infamous Salem witch trials, but that picture has mostly come down to us from one unreliable, antagonistic source. This biography by Rick Kennedy, based largely on new research by an international team of scholars, corrects misconceptions of Cotton Mather and focuses on the way he tried to promote, socially and intellectually, a biblical lifestyle. As older Puritan hopes in New England were giving way to a broader and shallower Protestantism, Mather led a populist, Bible-oriented movement that embraced the new century - the beginning of a dynamic evangelical tradition that eventually became a major force in American culture.

The First American Evangelical by Rick Kennedy was published by William B Eerdmans Publishing Co in May 2015. The ISBN for The First American Evangelical is 9780802872111.
