Whence the Evangelical Mind?
America’s God: From Jonathan Edwards to Abraham Lincoln
by Mark A. Noll
New York: Oxford University Press, 2002
(622 pages; $35.00, hardcover)
reviewed by Preston Jones
Mark Noll’s literary output is prodigious, and there is a thread of sadness that runs through much of it. Noll’s name became a household word among educated Evangelicals after the appearance of his much-discussed Scandal of the Evangelical Mind (1995), an important work that repeated some points made earlier by, among others, Francis and Franky Schaeffer, though Noll’s work was better informed than Francis’s and void of the stridency that often punctuated Franky’s.
