This collection of all new essays offers a close look at the connections between American Protestants and money in the Antebellum period. During the first decades of the new American nation, money was everywhere on the minds of the church leaders and many of their followers. Economic questions were important for religious self-definition, they figured regularly in preaching and pamphleteering, and they contributed greatly to perceptions of morality both public and private. In fact, money was always a religious question. For this reason, argue the authors of these essays, it is impossible to understand broader cultural developments of the period - including political developments - without considering religion and economics together. Taken together, the essays provide essential background to an issue that continues to loom large and generate controversy in the Protestant community today.

This book connects religious history and business history in important and constructive ways. * Business History Review *
The book serves as a useful compendium of recent research on evangelicalism and the market in which sensitivity to religion itself has become much more marked. * The Journal of American History *
