“Frances FitzGerald’s history of evangelicalism narrates the rise of evangelicalism in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and the striving that evangelicals have made to maintain that prominence, particularly in the past sixty years. As a journalist, FitzGerald employs a keen eye to the interplay between religion and politics, the key players, and the underlying structures that enable evangelical leaders to exert their level of influence.”
