“This volume, edited by the late Ernest Sandeen of Macalester College, celebrates the centenary of the Society of Biblical Literature with an examination of the role of Holy Scripture in American reform movements. Prominent scholars of the American experience survey the relationship of the Bible to Indian missions, abolition, the Social Gospel, the women's movement, Peace, and Black churches. A final essay explores the use of the Bible by Dorothy Day, the Catholic social activist. … Students should find this a valuable survey of major reform movements in America. As a whole, the book illustrates the significance of hermeneutics in American religious history. The question is not whether American Christians believe the Bible, but how they choose to interpret it.”
— Bill J. Leonard, Review & Expositor
