Keith Harper is Professor of Church History, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is the author of The Quality of Mercy: Southern Baptist and Social Christianity, 1890-1920.
 
“This collection of scholarly essays by church historians focuses on the history of Christian denominations within the United States. Inspired to update William Warren Sweet’s Religion on the American Frontier, published between 1931 and 1946, editor Keith Harper expands Sweet’s original coverage of four denominations (Congregationalists, Presbyterians, Baptists, and Methodists) to include essays on Catholic and Mormon historiography and on Black Protestant, Pentecostal, and Evangelical religious movements. Each essay discusses recent research and publications and has extensive bibliographical notes. This is a good starting point for the study of denominational history.”
