About this title

Synopsis:

Every day of the week in contemporary America (and especially on Sundays) people raise money for their religious enterprises—for clergy, educators, buildings, charity, youth-oriented work, and more. In a fascinating look into the economics of American Protestantism, James Hudnut-Beumler examines how churches have raised and spent money from colonial times to the present and considers what these practices say about both religion and American culture.

Review:

"A wonderful tour through the many ways that Protestants sought survival by stealing the advertising, selling, and buying tools found in the consumer market and business culture."--"The Journal of Religion"
"For scholars and church leaders who want to learn just how much of history they are currently repeating, this book is a good starting place."--"Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion"
"Informative history."--"ChristianCentury"
"A unique and valuable addition to the historiography of American religion."--"American Historical Review"
"Readers seeking a history of church fundraising will find the volume extremely helpful. . . . We can certainly profit from the numerous insights that are provided."--"Journal of American History"
"Offers an intriguing perspective on church history."--"Journal of Church and State"
"An overdue study of a neglected aspect of religion in America, of particular interest to theological and graduate students, and also to laypersons and church professionals. Recommended."--"CHOICE"
"Connects the longevity of American Protestantism to anxious, often uncomfortable attempts to systematize the practice of voluntary giving. . . . Those hungry to understand the drivers behind a key institution in American life will do well to take a look

"A concise and lucid narrative of this neglected but important topic. . . . An important book for any pastor, church administrator, or student of American religion. It provides both a compelling, well-researched history and significant insight."--"Them

Informative history.--"ChristianCentury"
