The Finger of Providence, 1815
This introductory chapter discusses the origins of religious publishing in America. Religious publishing can be traced back to 1815, through the efforts of missionary and religious tract societies to distribute the Bible and religious tracts. By the first half of the 19th century, scattered local societies had coalesced into national organizations, leading America into the modern era of mass publication and the systematic distribution of printed material. An overview of the chapters in this volume is presented.
