Item description for A Kingdom Not of This World: Stuart Robinson's Struggle to Distinguish the Sacred from the Secular During the Civil War by Preston D. Graham...

Overview
Stuart Robinson was a prominent Presbyterian newspaper editor who took upon himself the dangerous task of distinguishing between the spiritual world and the civil war within a border state "city of conflict" during the Civil War. Presently, historians tend to depict religion during the American Civil War as domesticated under sectional nationalism--where theologizing was directed at justifying the war in order to forge either a northern or southern Zion. Graham argues that such one-sided depictions do not sufficiently account for either the existence of a border state phenomenon during the civil war or the kind of theologizing that was being propagated from out of the border states against the domestication of religion to sectional politics. In this book, the author presents a case study of a rather sizeable movement among border state Presbyterians, with special attention given to their most celebrated and influential leader, the Dr. Rev. Stuart Robinson of Louisville, Kentucky. Given the significance of Robinson's theologizing relative to the American doctrine of the spearation of church and state, several primary resources are included in a reader portion of the appendix.

Reviews - What do customers think about A KINGDOM NOT OF THIS WORLD?

Adds depth and focus to Civil War Studies  Jun 7, 2002
A Kingdom Not Of This World by Preston D. Graham, Jr. (Senior Pastor, Christ Presbyterian Church, New Haven, Connecticut) is a profoundly presented, persuasively argued treatise against the common tendency of current historians to perceive religion as subordinate to nationalism in the American Civil War, with theology and the Church being used largely to justify political aims of the North and the South. A Kingdom Not Of This World challenges such perceptions with meticulous research, studies of primary resources, and emphatic presentation of the power of religious beliefs held in their own right, quite distinct from the 19th Century political controversy over slavery and states' rights that threatened to destroy America. A Kingdom Not Of This World is a unique and invaluable study which adds depth and focus to Civil War Studies and Church/State Studies supplemental reading lists and reference collections.
