Traditionally, American Fundamentalism has been placed in the 1920s. This historical error has been perpetuated. Battle for Orthodoxy: American Religious Thought (1870-1910) shows that the origin and rise of American Fundamentalism has been misunderstood and miscommunicated. This historical investigation corrects the faulty thinking behind this error.
"Quite enjoyable are those volumes on theological and philosophical trends, especially those that fit together key ideas so that they play off one another. What makes a text even better is when it falls into an area that I care about. When I first saw Norm Mathers' manuscript Battle for Orthodoxy, I began turning to the pages and topics that got me into the debate immediately. Beyond the stimulating nature of the trends, this book does something that very few texts do--it sets the debate about Scripture in an American context, hence filling a helpful position on our shelves."
--Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Research Prof. & Chair, Philosophy Dept., Liberty University
