This volume represents the first scholarly biography of Adolphe Monod, a leading figure in the French Reformed Church in the early 19th century. As a French Calvinist pastor and professor of theology at the French Reformed seminary at Montauban, Monod played an influential role as religious leader during the theological turmoil that struck the Church at that time. This book presents an insightful case study of Monod's relation to the French Reformed Church and to the nineteenth century. An interesting text for students of church history, French history, and religion.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The bibliography is especially useful. * Church History: Studies in Christianity and Culture *
...we must be thankful to the American historian, James L. Osen, to have undertaken an immense work in clearing the public and private archives at Paris ...at Geneva, and at Lyons to reveal to us the uncommon personality of Pastor Adolphe Monod. * Bulletin de la Societe de L'histoire du Protestantisme Franc *
...because of the importance of the subject, the treatment of some main themes in the history of French Protestantism, and Osen's stolid earnestness, the reader feels after finishing the book... satisfied...Osen has been a beaver in the archives and inreading secondary literature. His book should be a lamp unto the refractory feet of textbook writers who want to journey into the realm of modern French Protestantism. * American Historical Review *
