The Urban Pulpit

Chapters 5 examines a conservative backlash, and two ministers who attempted to revitalize the verbal Word in the face of liberal evangelicalism: the Baptist dispensationalist Isaac Haldeman and the revivalist Billy Sunday. One cultivated devotional ways of reading the Bible; the other brought new force to the preached word. The chapter also notes the changing perception evangelicals had of the city: from a poverty-stricken, immigrant filled industrial wasteland to, increasingly, the center of a growing American commercial culture that promoted leisure and consumption and celebrated cultural diversity.
