on US shores, to 1950...Winston's fine book is a remarkable tale not just of the rise to prominence of the Salvation Army but of the interplay between religion and culture--a dynamic that is still alive and well today.
From the Back Cover
In this engrossing study of religion, urban life, and commercial culture, Diane Winston shows how a (self-styled "red-hot") militant Protestant mission established a beachhead in the modern city. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Her explanation of the secularization of religion, the bringing of religion out of the clouds and into everyday life, provides a whole new perspective on religious belief. A time when the religious experience was fun.
