Review:

This work is much more than an excellent biography of Phillips Brooks. It is set in such a wide-ranging authoritative theological context that Brooks is truly seen as a 'Path of Liberal Protestantism' stretching from the 17th century to our own times.--The Right Reverend Christopher FitzSimmons Allison

Gillis Harp's masterful treatment of Phillips Brooks in the intellectual and church context of his time is an instant classic. Dr. Harp's feel, from the inside, for Anglican Evangelicanism makes him an ideal interpreter of Brooks' ambivalent achievement. This is extremely solid scholarship, bearing somewhat devastating implications for the present.--Rev. Dr. Paul F. M. Zahl, author of A Short Systematic Theology

A fascinating, original account of one of America's greatest preachers. The author draws upon historical, literary, architectural, and theological analysis to demonstrate the ways Phillips Brooks reflected and transformed his times--concluding with a sober assessment of his legacy in our own day.--Daniel Walker Howe, Oxford University

Synopsis:
