The Urban Pulpit

Matthew Bowman

Oxford University Press

The Baptist fundamentalist John Roach Straton embraced the term “fundamentalist” primarily as a description for his pastoral style, centered upon an aggressive assertion of the preached Word – a traditional evangelical doctrine Straton found threatened in the increasingly loud commercial culture of New York City. He engaged in a number of controversies against New York’s theatre culture, commercial culture, and liberal ministers, eventually embracing a form of Pentecostalism to assert the supernatural authority of the Bible.
