In Apostles of Reason, Molly Worthen offers a sweeping history of modern American evangelicalism. Traditionally, evangelicalism has been seen as a cohesive - indeed almost monolithic - religious movement. Sometimes religion drops out of the picture and evangelicalism is treated strictly as apolitical force. Worthen argues that these views are false. Evangelicalism is, rather, a community of believers preoccupied by three elemental concerns: how to reconcile faith and reason; how to know Jesus; and how to bring faith to a secularized public square. In combination, under the pressures ofmodernity, and in the absence of a guiding authority capable of resolving uncertainties and disagreements, these debates have shaped evangelicals into a distinctive spiritual community.

MOLLY WORTHEN graduated from Yale University in 2003. She received the Ellsworth Prize for most distinguished senior essay in the humanities, the Schubart Prize for best original published work, the David C. DeForest/ Townsend Premium Prize for oration, and the Kingsley Fellowship for the study of Russian Orthodox Old Believers in Alberta. She has written for the Yale Daily News, the Toledo Blade, the Dallas Morning News, and Time. Her interests include cartoon illustration, fly fishing, and improvisational comedy. She is also a national championship debater. This is her first book.
