Kidd on Sarah Osborn's World

At the Anxious Bench, Thomas Kidd lists “Five Compelling Religious Biographies.” Among them is Catherine Brekus’s new book, Sarah Osborn’s World: The Rise of Evangelical Christianity in Early America, which Kidd calls “the best biography we have on a female evangelical in colonial America” and also “simply one of the best books I have read on the life of an American evangelical, female or male.”
