Contents True honor comes from God alone : evangelicalism and the language of the alternative community -- In the publick manner : honor, community, discipline, and the self in the local church -- Dual citizens and a twice sacred circle : men, women, and honor in the local church -- Social death and everlasting life : slave identity, honor, and ritual -- A voice at its full thunder : evangelical oratory, honor, and the self -- An everlasting name : ambition, fame, duty, death, and the evangelical ideal.
Summary Most histories of the American South describe the conflict between evangelical religion and honour culture as one of the defining features of southern life before the Civil War. The story is usually told as a battle of clashing worldviews, but in this book, Robert Elder challenges this interpretation by illuminating just how deeply evangelicalism in Methodist, Baptist, and Presbyterian churches was interwoven with traditional southern culture.
