  • Black Church in the Sixtiesby Hart M. Nelsen; Anne Kusener Nelsen

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    What was the role of the black church in the rise of militancy that marked the sixties? Was it a calming influence that slowed that rise?

In Black Church in the Sixties the Nelsens attack the view that the church tended to inhibit... more...

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 32.00

    Meeting at an African American college in North Carolina in 1959, a group of black and white Episcopalians organized the Episcopal Society for Cultural and Racial Unity and pledged to oppose all distinctions based on race, ethnicity, and social class.

  • Selling Catholicismby Christopher Owen Lynch

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    Between the Civil War and the turn of the last century, Southern Baptists gained prominence in the religious life of the South.
