The aim of this text is to provide a complete picture of social Christianity - a movement which included blacks, women, Southerners, and Westerners. The book demonstrates how the movement worked to solve industrial, political, and urban problems; reduce racial discrimination; increase the status of women; curb drunkenness and prostitution; strengthen the family; upgrade public schools; and raise the quality of public health. In his analysis of the available scholarship and case studies of individuals, organizations, and campaigns central to the movement, the author presents a case that argues social Christianity was the most widespread, long-lasting, and influential religious social reform movement in American history.
