Acerca de


Rally the Scattered Believers is an important new interpretation of how religious change shaped American cultural identity in the early republic. * Journal of American History * Shelby Balik's deeply researched 'Rally the Scattered Believers: Northern New England's Religious Geography' offers a finely grained picture of that era of burgeoning development. . . . Balik's book delivers one of the best histories of precisely what the 'Second Great Awakening' amounted to in northern New England. Dec 2015 * American Historical Review * The book's meticulous coverage of the spread of these faiths and its interpretation through the lens of geography is a strength. . . . Recommended. * Choice * Using church and town records, the personal writings and correspondence of laity and clergy, books, pamphlets, and religious periodicals, Balik has written an engaging, ground-level religious history with larger implications. * Journal of the Early Republic * [A]n ambitious and engaging piece of scholarship. . . Rally the Scattered Believers promises to complement classic and much-respected works on Vermont's religious communities during this period. . . More significant than the book's engagement with that earlier scholarship is its contribution to recent and ongoing scholarly discussion about the place of religion in early American life. Balik's New England is a religious place. . . [H]er interesting new book provides an alternative to other recent books that see more of the secular than the sacred in America's past.83.1 Winter/Spring 2015 * Vermont History * Balik's exhaustively researched book represents the most comprehensive and important study of northern New England's religious history published to date. It is also a significant contribution to a small body of scholarship on the spatial study of religion. . . . In sum, this is a major work of extraordinary scholarship. * Church History * I strongly recommend Balik's book for those studying colonial religious landscapes and heritages not only in New England, but in the nineteenth-century religious diasporas that swept the continent with varying mixes of European colonials and also African and Asian heritages. -- Stanley D. Brunn * University of Kentucky * [A] deeply researched and meticulously sourced book. . . [R]eading Rally the Scattered Believers helped me to consider anew the centrality of place-and the differing ways that religious organizations organize space-in understanding religious history.9/22/14 * Religion in American History *
