Inhaltsangabe: Because central and southern Appalachia's distinctive Christianity lacks a clearly recognizable "father figure", religious historians have long struggled to fully explain its origins, traditions, and folklore. In this well researched and authoritative account of the region's religion, John Sparks focuses on Shubal Stearns, an influential early Baptist leader who did much to spread Christianity in southern Appalachia.Stearns and a dedicated band of followers left New England in 1754 to minister on the frontiers of Virginia and North Carolina. Successful beyond his wildest dreams, Stearns established an association of churches that gave birth to many of the disparate denominations steadfastly maintained in the Appalachian region today.Sparks's lively discussion investigates the unique preaching and singing styles of the region and explores the disputes, theologies, and personalities that pushed Stearns to the forefront of Appalachian religion.
From the Publisher: “This is a special kind of book, written by a person mostly within the religious traditions discussed, and as such it has a distinct viewpoint and sense of authority. The book very carefully, clearly, and impressively recounts the biography and influence of Shubal Stearns on subsequent southern religious history.” —John B. Boles, editor of the Journal of Southern History
“A rare book. . . . Sparks is an astute observer, an indefatigable researcher, and he is gifted in his ability to express himself. A significant contribution . . . especially because it comes from one who is daily involved in the lives of an Appalachian congregation.” —Loyal Jones, author of Faith and Meaning in the Southern Uplands
