An introduction to the study of social Christianity in the late-19th and early-20th centuries. John C. Waldmeir addresses a wide variety of literary genres and art forms. There are examples from sources which include the social Christian newspaper "The Dawn", a sampling of the works of various novelists, poets and essayists, an in-depth study of the most famous of the social Christian novelists (Charles Sheldon), and the paintings of visual artists such as Harry Learned and Olof Grafstrom. Waldmeir provides a literary analysis of the material. His discussion aims to go beyond narrow, disciplinary thinking and presents social Christian thought as a rich conglomeration of imaginative, diverse and sometimes conflicting thought.
