- Publisher The first in a three-volume history, this text identifies the indigenous roots of American liberal theology and uncovers a wider, longer-running tradition than has been thought. Taking a narrative approach the text provides a biographical reading of important religious thinkers of the time, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry ward Beecher, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Charles Briggs. It notes that although liberal theology moved into elite academic institutions, its conceptual foundations were laid in the pulpit rather than the classroom.

- Publisher Dorrien defines American liberal theology primarily by its historical character, as an ecumenical Christian tradition that derives from the late 18th- and early 19th-century Protestant attempts to reconceptualize the meaning of traditional Christian teaching in the light of modern knowledge and ethical values.
