Hedstrom attends particularly to the seriously vital but little-studied area of spiritual publication culture-particularly the non secular middlebrow of mid-century-as the location the place spiritual liberalism was once so much successfully popularized. through taking a look at e-book weeks, ebook golf equipment, public libraries, new publishing firms, key authors and bestsellers, wartime interpreting courses, and fan mail, between different assets, Hedstrom is ready to offer a wealthy, on-the-ground account of the boys, girls, and businesses that drove spiritual liberalism's cultural upward thrust within the Twenties, Thirties, and Forties. severely, via the post-WWII interval the non secular middlebrow had improved past its Protestant roots, utilizing mystical and mental spirituality as a platform for interreligious trade. This compelling historical past of faith and publication tradition not just indicates how examining and booklet paying for have been serious twentieth-century non secular practices, but in addition presents a version for considering the connection of faith to shopper tradition extra commonly. during this method, The upward thrust of Liberal Religion deals either cutting edge cultural background and new methods of seeing the imprint of liberal faith in our personal times.
