As new forms of industry transformed the lives of people around the world and as individualism, nationalism and scientific enterprise became more important, how did Christians come to terms with ever more rapid change? The three parts of this book address the question from different angles: first, the reconfiguration of ideas about death, sex and emotional life; then regional manifestations of faith in Brazil, Russia and New England; and finally the experience of slavery and the increasing visibility of women.
