eBook - 2001
Rate this:
This first thorough study of organized mainline churches in a major southern American city during the early 20th century makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the dynamics of urban religion. Avenues of Faith documents how religion flourished in southern cities after the turn of the century and how a cadre of clergy and laity created a notably progressive religious culture in Richmond, the bastion of the Old South. Famous as the former capital of the Confederacy, Richmond emerges as a dynamic and growing industrial city invigorated by the social activism of its Protestants.
