A study of Machen’s thought and career that says much about the issues that unsettled mainstream Protestantism’s hold on American intellectual and cultural life. 


"Reads with the passion and pathos of historical reconstruction at its best and most honest. Hart is a gifted writer, and he has taken as his subject a fascinating individual set withing one of the most formative moments in modern Protestantism."

R. Albert Mohler

"Hart's portrait of Machen provides a novel perspective that merits the attention of those interested not just in fundamentalism but in the place of faith in modern America."

Bradley J. Longfield
