Calvinist Baptist preacher William Miller (1782-1849) was the first prominent American popularizer of using biblical prophecy to determine a specific and imminent time for Christ's return to earth. On October 22, 1844, he and his followers gathered to await a Second Coming that never came. Nonetheless, David Rowe argues, Miller was in many ways a mainstream, even typical figure of his time. Reflecting Rowe's meticulous research throughout, God's Strange Work does more than tell one man's remarkable story. It encapsulates the broader history of American Christianity in the time period and sets the stage for many significant later developments - the founding of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the tenets of various well-known new religious movements, and even the enduring American fascination with end-times prophecy. Rowe rescues Miller from the fringes and places him where he rightly belongs - in the center of American religious history.
The first scholarly biography of one of the 19th century's most intriguing figures Husband, father, farmer, scribe, and war veteran, William Miller is best remembered as the first American popularizer of end-times prophecy. In this well-researched account of Miller's life, Rowe rescues him from the fringes and places him at the center of American religious history.
