Chapter 6 pivots back to liberal evangelicals, exploring the ways they tried to cope with this “new New York.” Using the Union School of Religion at Union Theological Seminary, an experimental Sunday school run by the Methodist George A. Coe in the 1910s and 1920s, as a lens, it examines the tensions that emerged between Coe’s liberal evangelicalism and the more progressive and pluralist ideology of many of his followers. Union Seminary’s decision to shut down the school illustrates both the clear boundaries, but also the ultimately tenuous nature, of liberal evangelicalism
