520 |aMany people believe that American Protestantism has been divided into two groups: those concerned with the impact of religion in the public sphere and those concerned with private faith, individual morality and personal evangelism. In his new book, Douglas Strong provides examples of people who built bridges over the apparent chasm between these two groups during the last 150 years, people who were able to develop a deep personal piety while working simultaneously to transform society. Selections from William Goodell, Julia Foote, William Seymour, Charles Stelzle, Vida Scudder, E. Stanley Jones, Clarence Jordan, and Orlando Costas are included.
