    1. This is the first in a three-volume series that maps out how American Theology, founded in Puritanism, given over to evangelism, took the transition to Liberal Protestantism (and greater Pluralism). Dorrien mixes theological analysis with historical and biographical detail to chronicle the history of a "third way" between authority-based orthodoxies (traditional Christianity) and atheistic rationalism. It reads in many ways like a mini-biographies overlaid with themes pointing toward Liberal Pro [...]


    2. This is the first volume of a three volume history of American liberal theology written from a largely sympathetic perspective. It is well-written and is a good introduction to liberal thought as it developed in the nineteenth century. Take aways:Though liberal theology existed in the form of Unitarianism in the early days of the republic, Unitarian influence was curtailed by being ejected from the Congregational churches and segregated in its own denomination. This combined with revivals in the [...]


    3. As someone identifying more with the more orthodox wing of Dorrien's history, I can still acknowledge good scholarship when I see it. The biographical and intellectual sketches of Bushnell, Gladden, Henry Ward Beecher, and Charles Briggs in here are some of the best and most helpful I've read. Dorrien also excellently traces the influences from German criticism and theology into the American seen. It is clear Dorrien sympathizes with his subjects, but he limits the explicit endorsements to the i [...]


    4. Changed how I think about religion, both personally and academically. It amazed me to read such poignant accounts of people who held to their convictions of truth against overwhelming opposition from proponents of orthodoxy and tradition. One of the most challenging books I've ever read, but still (and partially as a result of its difficulty) one of the most rewarding.
