Spencer McBride | Pulpit and Nation: Clergymen and the Politics of Revolutionary America

Join Spencer McBride for a reading and signing of his new nonfiction book, Pulpit and Nation: Clergymen and the Politics of Revolutionary America. 

In Pulpit and Nation, Spencer McBride highlights the importance of Protestant clergymen in early American political culture, elucidating the actual role of religion in the founding era. This book reveals the ways in which the clergy’s political activism expanded and evolved to become an integral piece in the invention of an American national identity. While religious expression was common in the political culture of the Revolutionary era, it was as much the calculated design of ambitious men seeking power as it was the natural outgrowth of a devoutly religious people.
