Identifying the Image of God: Radical Christians and Nonviolent Power in the Antebellum United States

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, Nov 14, 2002 - Religion - 304 pages
Between 1820 and 1860, American social reformers invited all people to identify God's image in the victims of war, slavery, and addiction. Identifying the Image of God traces the theme of identification--and its liberal Christian roots--through the literature of social reform, focusing on sentimental novels, temperance tales, and slave narratives, and invites contemporary activists to revive the "politics of identification."
