Sarah Osborn's World
In a recent post on the Anxious Bench blog, Tommy Kidd offers "Five Compelling Religious Biographies." Here, he suggests some holiday gifts, including Paul Gutjahr's Charles Hodge: Guardian of American Orthodoxy, Barry Hankins's Francis Schaeffer and the Shaping of American Evangelical Culture, and Catherine Brekus's Sarah Osborn's World: The Rise of Evangelical Christianity in Early America. I mention these titles because the first two have been highlighted on the ESRH blog. Regarding Catherine Brekus's book, I know that a review on it will appear shortly in Books & Culture.
