This collection of essays offers a close look at the connections between American Protestants and money in the Antebellum period. During the first decades of the new American nation, money was everywhere on the minds of church leaders and many of their followers. Economic questions were important for religious self-definition, they figured regularly in preaching and pampleteering, and they contributed greatly to perceptions of morality both public and private. In fact, money was always a religious question. For this reason, argue the authors of these essays, it is impossible to understand broader cultural developments of the period - including political developments - without considering religion and economics together. Taken together, the essays provide a background to an issue that continues to loom large and generate controversy in the Protestant community at the beginning of the 21st century.
