Review:

''This book's essence is to challenge the allegation of philistinism against nineteenth century evangelicals, focussing particularly on the years 1790-1830. […] it was interesting to discover the attitudes that they adopt towards their contemporary culture, and the distinctive contributions that some of them made.'' --Peter Murcott in: English Churchmann, 21.-28. September 2012

'Although in the intervening decades scholars have worked and published in different fields, this still offers an overview which is otherwise hard to find, and for anyone wanting a handle on how culture and religion related in the years before Victoria this is indispensable reading.' --Peter S. Forsaith in Wesley and Methodist Studies, Vol. 4, 2012

"... [Evangelicals and Culture] is to be commended on two grounds: as an excellent introduction to an important aspect of a movement in the life of the churches at a critical moment; and, at the same time, pointing up some of the surprising echoes to be found with our contemporary debates which can be given a fresh perspective in the light of history..." --Paul Ballard, Theological book review, Vol. 24, No 2, 2012.

...Whilst the bibliography has been updated and there are stylistic adjustments, the content and argument of the second edition are unchanged from the original and thus continue to provide an invaluable insight into the Evangelical mind. It is to be hoped that this new edition of Roman's work will reach the wider public that its wisdom has always deserved... --John Briggs, Baptist Quarterly, Volume 45, April 2013

'If one must understand the past to understand the present, then Evangelicals, and those interested in learning about Evangelicals, should read this text...[Rosman's] discussion of early Evangelicals is instructive for contemporary Evangelicals to understand why they continue to struggle with the cultural question of what constitutes worldliness.' --Stephen M. Vantassel, Evangelical Quarterly, Vol. 86, No. 1, January 2014

Readers will be impressed with the sharp observations and careful scholarship of Rosman…This is a thoughtful and well crafted book, which broadens our views of evangelicalism. " Doreen M. Rosman thoughtfully analyses the accuracy of this depiction of evangelical's engagement with the culture of the latter Goergian era in this study and cogently presents a more nuanced assessment than the one offered by the traditional view. [...] Her schlorship offers a highly complementary picture to other studies that focus on the evangelical's theology and their evangelistic and social reform projects and it fairly and persuasively highlights a rather significant deciency of evangelical movement at the same time." Andrew Kloes, The Expository Times, vol. 126 no. 6, March 2015 --Martyn Percy, Anvil, Vol 30, Issue 1, (March, 2014)

Doreen Rosman taught history at the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK, from 1974 to 2001. She is the author of The Evolution of the English Churches 1500-2000 (Cambridge University Press, 2003).

Book Description Wipf Stock Publishers, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Synopsis: Nineteenth-century evangelicals have often been dismissed as anti-intellectual and philistine. This book draws on periodicals, memoirs, and letters to discover how far this was true of British evangelicals between 1790 and 1833. It examines their leisure pursuits along with their enjoyment of art, music, literature, and study, and concludes that they shared the thought and taste of their contemporaries to a far greater extent than is usually acknowledged. What is more, their theology encouraged such activities. Evangelicals regarded recreations which engaged the mind or which could be pursued within the safety of the home as more concordant with spirituality than sensual or worldly pleasures. Nevertheless, their faith did militate against culture and learning. Some evangelicals dismissed all non-religious pursuits as vanity, since their deep-rooted otherworldliness made them suspicious of anything that did not contribute to eternal well-being. A new generation adopted a more rigid attitude to the Bible, which made them unwilling to examine new ideas. In the last resort, even the most cultured evangelicals were unable to reconcile their delight in the arts with their world-denying theology. Endorsements: Doreen Rosman s book . . . bears testimony to the eagerness of evangelicals to join in cultural affairs . . . It goes a long way towards explaining the permeation of nineteenth-century culture by evangelical values. --David Bebbington Professor of History University of Stirling This ground-breaking work investigates an important, albeit neglected, aspect of English Evangelical history. As Roseman makes clear, simplistic notions of philistinism fail to take into account the extent of cultural and intellectual pursuits (broadly defined) within Evangelical domestic life, and thus perpetuate misleading prejudices. Publication of this new edition is a welcomed event. --Grayson Carter Associate Professor of Church History Fuller Theological Seminary Author Biography: Doreen Rosman taught history at the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK, from 1974 to 2001.
