Item description for Standing Against the Whirlwind : Evangelical Episcopalians in Nineteenth-Century America (Religion in America) by Diana Hochstedt Butler...

Standing Against the Whirlwind is a history of the Evangelical party in the Episcopal Church in nineteenth-century America. A surprising revisionist account of the church's first century, it reveals the extent to which evangelical Episcopalians helped to shape the piety, identity, theology, and mission of the church. Using the life and career of one of the party's greatest leaders, Charles Pettit McIlvaine, the second bishop of Ohio, Diana Butler blends institutional history with biography to explore the vicissitudes and tribulations of evangelicals in a church that often seemed inhospitable to their version of the Gospel. This gracefully written narrative history of a neglected movement sheds light on evangelical religion within a particular denomination and broadens the interpretation of nineteenth-century American evangelicalism as a whole. In addition, it elucidates such wider cultural and religious issues as the meaning of millennialism and the nature of the crisis over slavery.

Reviews - What do customers think about Standing Against the Whirlwind : Evangelical Episcopalians in Nineteenth-Century America (Religion in America)?

Church History Eye Opener!  Apr 24, 2003
Dr, Butler has taken a little known era and party of the Episcopal Church and given us a very readable and flowing description of the time and mind-set of a wing of the Church which few have studied and, of which, some have never heard. Her genuis is for telling the story through the ministry of one Evangelical Bishop, Charles Pettit McIlvanie, and uses his own articles, books and letters to relate his thoughts and the motivations behind his actions. Some consider her a "revisionist", but that term cannot be justly applied since she is probably the first historian to tell this enthralling story in detail. Church history is not a reader's delight, BUT Dr. Butler makes it managable and even enjoyable. Being a doctoral discertation developed into a book it bares none of the usual academic meanderings common to such works. My only criticism is Dr. Butler's seeming inability to stick to a chronological stream, Individuals are sometimes quoted prior to their introduction into the story line - a small flaw in an otherwise brilliant piece of historical prose. I advise buying it used as no book of 270 pages should command such a price as this one does new.
