More than 1 in 4 Americans identify themselves as Christian Evangelicals. If considered as a religious group, Evangelicals form the largest in America today. For the first time, this volume collects the essential texts that have formed the American Evangelical tradition.
Evangelicals first arrived on these shores in the 17th century, and the book begins with writings by Cotton Mather from that century, then moves through the essentials of great Evangelical preachers and spiritual writers such as Jonathan Edwards, D.L. Moody, B.B. Warfield, A.W. Tozer, and Aimee Semple McPherson. Themes of "Conversion & Grace," "Spiritual Practices & Gifts," and "Looking toward Heaven" are explored in detail. Often neglected writers such as Sarah Osborn and Frances Willard are included, as well, along with late 20th century figures such as John Piper, Scot McKnight, and Dallas Willard.
Foreword by Kyle Strobel, author of Formed for the Glory of God: Learning from the Spiritual Practices of Jonathan Edwards
