Fragmentation and Denomination

(p.151) Epilogue
Faith in Reading

David Paul Nord (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This epilogue describes the transition of mainstream religious publishing from the millennial high of general supplies conducted by great ecumenical societies to the more steady, yet fragmented, world of the denominational publisher. By the early 1860s, the largest religious publisher in America was no longer the American Bible Society (ABS) or the American Tract Society (ATS) but the Methodist Book Concern. Both the ABS and the ATS lives on; they continue to live on today, in an age of multimedia CD-ROMs and e-tracts. But after 1860, they learned to live within an enormously diverse constellation of denominations and religious publishing enterprises.
