"Timely and absorbing. Like the best in this genre, this biography brilliantly positions Rauschenbusch in his own era."
--Harvey Cox, Hollis Professor of Divinity, Harvard Divinity School
"Splendid. A model of historical scholarship and theological analysis; it significantly strengthens our understanding of Rauschenbusch and his era."
--Gary Dorrien, Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Social Ethics, Union Theological Seminary
"Definitive. Evans presents the paradoxes and complexities of Rauschenbusch's life, thought, and action in ways that past biographers have not."
--Rosemary Skinner Keller, Professor Emerita of Church History, Union Theological Seminary
