Foreword by Allen GuelzoHorace Bushnell (1802-1876) is one of the most studied figures in nineteenth-century American religious history, but there has been no major biography of him for almost fifty years. The Puritan as Yankee provides a much-needed--and provocatively new--look at this famous American Christian thinker.Based on a close reading of Bushnell's writings and unpublished sources as well as careful attention to how contemporaries saw him, Robert Bruce Mullin's book throws fresh light on its subject. Breaking from the long tradition of portraying Bushnell as the father of American liberal Christianity, Mullin offers a fundamentally new picture of Bushnell as a man deeply concerned with the questions of his age, and a far more interesting figure than previously thought. Bushnell emerges here as an innovator, a Yankee tinkerer in the field of religion, and a profoundly conservative figure.Expertly researched and enjoyable to read, this volume tells an important chapter in American religious history.ContentsForeword, by Allen C.
