Item Description...
(PUBEerdmans)In the first major biography in 50 years, Mullin sees the 19th-century "liberal" theologian as in reality a Yankee tinkerer and Puritan conservative. "Sophisticated, well informed, and challenging. Recommended for all religion and American history collections,"---Library Journal. 296 pages, softcover.

Publishers Description
"Horace Bushnell (1802-76), the much maligned 19th-century liberal pastor/scholar/ theologian, is here vindicated as a deeply conservative Puritan and misunderstood intellectual of his time. In this biography, Mullin (General Theological Seminary) considers Bushnell in the context of his time and milieu. While calling him a "flinty character," Mullin argues that Bushnell was quintessentially a Yankee and a Puritan, seeking innovation yet all the while sustained by a bedrock trust in the values and continuity of the Puritan tradition. Mullin places great emphasis on Bushnell's European travels as well as his writings (published as well as unpublished) from 1846 to early 1849, where he finds him working through his concerns for the lost unity of the Puritans. These ideas fed into Bushnell's sense that "the fractiousness of American political life was an outgrowth of the New Light piety," an evangelical piety that stressed individualism over community. Sophisticated, well informed, and challenging, this first biography of Bushnell in 50 years requires some awareness of American religious history. Recommended for all religion and early American history collections." - Library Journal

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Book 7 yrs in print, not one review as yet  Apr 2, 2009
Figures in this shallow minded society, there is no reviews on the most important american spiritualist.
Here's what Christ said.

*many are called very very few are chosen*..
.*those who are truly seeking wholehearted fervent will find*
Christ is describing the type of man who will carefully read this book, and all Bushnell's writings.
Bushnell knew he was not understood in his day, that he was far ahead of his time. Bushnell still remains unknown and moreso, misunderstood genius of the spirit.
