Hill, Samuel S.:
One Name But Several Faces: Variety in Popular Christian Denominations in Southern History - hardcover

ISBN: 9780820317922

[ED: Hardcover], [PU: UNIV OF GEORGIA PR], In this richly suggestive overview, a noted historian illuminates the variety and vitality of southern religion by examining three major Protestant denominational families in the region: Baptists, "Christians" (for example, the Churches of Christ), and the "of God" groups (Pentecostals, among others). Ranging in coverage from the colonial period to the present, with special emphasis on the nineteenth century, Samuel S. Hill traces the growth and diversification of each of these groups as they have sloughed off old patterns, conventions, and constraints in their neverending searches for systems of belief and modes of expression that better embody their convictions and fit their socioeconomic situations. Throughout One Name but Several Faces, Hill turns again and again to the interrelated themes of freedom, creativity, and discontinuity that emerge from the major transitions of southern religious history: the toppling of the old Europe-influenced religious establishment and the emergence of Baptists and Methodists the informal, unofficial "establishment" of folk religious formations the rapid growth of separate and independent black churches and denominations and the beginning of the Holiness and Pentecostal movements. Internal forces are also constantly at work in the religious South, says Hill. He points to a medley of sacred and secular concerns, manifested as "freedoms", that have driven religious history from the bottom up and fueled the seemingly constant splinterings and regroupings of some denominations. Among them are the freedoms from church and theological systems from constraining conventions of polite society from domination by higher social classes or by traditionsperceived as inviolate and from restraints on holistic human expression, in spirit, body, and emotions. The story of southern religion, says Hill, is one of courage, imagination, and persistence. Not only does One Name but Several Faces bring into sharper focus some of the conVersandfertig in über 4 Wochen
