Current Research

I am currently working on a new book entitled On Earth as it is in Heaven: Social Christians and the Fight to End American Inequality (under contract with Oxford University Press).  Starting in the nineteenth century, some American Christians came to see participation in fights against inequality as essential to their faith. Over the course of roughly one hundred years, stretching from 1865 to 1965, these believers — women and men, Catholic and Protestant, black and white and Latino/a — cultivated a proud, if fractious, social Christian tradition that transformed not only the churches but also the nation as a whole. This books tells the story of how little-known activists, eminent theologians, radical preachers, and progressive politicians powered faith-filled movements for a more egalitarian United States of America.
