Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Evarts (1781-1831), the Cherokees' greatest defender and the most consistent antagonist of President Andrew Jackson's Indian Removal policies, is the subject of this important work by the author of Rebuilding the Christian Commonwealth: New England Congregationalists and Foreign Missions, 1800-1830 (Univ. of Kentucky Pr., 1976). Evarts, a lawyer, missionary, and neo-Calvinist reformer, was a major exemplar of conservative Christian republicanism, which both clashed and melded with individualism, capitalism, and democracy in the transformation of 19th-century American society. Andrew's scholarly portrayal closes a gap in American biography and relates the life of an American activist practitioner of Protestant orthodoxy and his search for the "soul of America." Highly recommended.

Review

"Andrew's scholarly portrayal closes a gap in American biography and relates the life of an American activist practitioner of Protestant orthodoxy and his search for the 'soul of America.' Highly recommended."--Library Journal


"John A. Andrew III has produced a comprehensive study of Jeremiah Evarts. This volume is well written and well researched using Evarts's personal and family papers as well as records of the missionaries and government documents relating to Indian affairs. Although little material was available concerning Evarts's family life, Andrew has ably reconstructed the life of a man who placed the cause of religion and the Indians above all else. This work is an important addition to pre-removal and early American Republic literature."--North Carolina Historical Review


"Based on an enormous body of research, this study links political ideology and Christian theology in a clearly written, logically organized narrative. [Andrew] captures the intellectual excitement and intensity of the age, and he conveys to a modern audience Evarts's passion for and commitment to his cause. Scholars of the early republic and the Jacksonian era as well as historians of religion should find much that is useful in the fine book."--Georgia Historical Quarterly


"A welcome addition to the burgeoning literature on the religious and cultural history of the early republic."--Journal of Southern History
