By T.J. Tomlin
Employing a wealth of archival fabric, T.J. Tomlin analyzes the pan-Protestant sensibility allotted during the almanac's pages among 1730 and 1820. by means of disseminating a set of Protestant ideas relating to God's life, divine revelation, the human situation, and the afterlife, almanacs performed an unprecedented position in early American non secular existence. inspired by means of readers' reviews and printers' pragmatism, the non secular content material of daily print helps an leading edge interpretation of early American cultural and non secular background. In sharp distinction to a historiography situated on intra-Protestant festival, Tomlin exhibits that the majority early american citizens trusted a handful of Protestant "essentials" instead of denominational specifics to outline and manage their non secular lives.
