"Engel fills a significant gap in the history of the Moravian Brethren in America by focusing on the connection between their spiritual ideal and economic activity. In doing so, she also spotlights the significance of transatlantic ties and the impact of the Seven Years War for the entire middle Atlantic region."—Journal of American History
"Ambitious and deeply researched. . . . An ideal example of a case study with far broader implications for American religious history."—Church History
"Engel's account of change over the last part of the century features careful attention to the interplay of local and world events, the continuing integrity of Moravian religious motives, but also the compelling force of circumstances that ended the earlier dynamism of this pilgrim community. . . . A noteworthy example of Atlantic history at its best."—Catholic Historical Review
