In the twilight of the nineteenth century Augustus Strong emerged as one of the most influential church leaders and theologians in America. Yet Strong was, as Grant Wacker reveals him in this masterful study, a tragic figure forced to choose between conceptual worlds that were, to him, incompatible yet equally cogent. He acquired a historical awareness rare among conservative scholars even as he struggled with its implications. “To the end,” Professor Wacher writes, Strong “clung to the conviction that the faith once delivered unto the fathers somehow stands above the vicissitudes of history, even as he became increasingly conscious that all things human are fragile creations of time and place.”
