Editorial Reviews


""Embattled Ecumenism is a creative and scintillating read, its subject matter fascinating and timely. gill's writing exhibits all the best traits of good history: crisp narrative based on sound analysis of a wide range of rich primary sources. The result is a sympathetic but not uncritical rendering of a powerful organization and its earnest devotees.

" Darren Dochuk, Associate professor of History at purdue University and author of From Bible Belt to Sunbelt: Plain Folk Religion, Grassroots Politics, and the Rise of the Evangelical Conservatism

"This book makes a significant contribution to the history of American religion. I am not aware of any work quite like it, and it stands as a unique approach to issues of ecumenism and the Vietnam War.

" Mitchell k. Hall, professor of History at Central Michigan University and author of

"The Vietnam War


"This welcome new book provides a study of the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the U.S.A. (NCCC) as it tackled issues connected with the Vietnam War.... Underlying the demise of the authentic ecumenism in the NCCC and the substitution of political and social action was a contested understanding of the meaning of ecumenism itself."―Journal of Ecumenical Studies

"Gill's book is a strikingly readable work of scholarship that resounds with relevance in today's America, where the evangelical Christian right has tremendous influence in politics and culture. Readers with an interest in American religious history, the Vietnam era, or the Johnson and Nixon presidencies would find Embattled Ecumenism worthy of their time."―Idaho Statesman"
