A great study 22 février 2011
Par Jackson R. Pope III - Publié sur
Format: Broché
A very interesting analysis of turn of the century Protestant America that looks at how a new conception of manhood was altering the character of mainline Protestantism to make it conform to ideas of masculinity. In part this reaction was imposed by a broader cultural movement which forced Protestant leaders to co-opt those ideas lest they open themselves up to criticism of overfeminization or lose converts to the secular "strenuous life" philosophy, but in large measure the effort to reemphasize the masculine aspect of Christianity and reassert control over Church life was not a calculated response to outside pressure, but motivated by various social anxieties that lead to new definition of manhood in general. In short, it examines a broad social process applied to Protestantism in particular. In any event, it should prove a very valuable resource for historians and sociologists studying various aspects of turn of the century America.

Vastly Helpful 21 décembre 2010
Par Peter P. Fuchs - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have been reading this outstanding book as part of the research for a very complex project. Beyond being delightfully written, with great clarity and lack of pretension, it is vastly helpful as well. Historical analysis always involves, it seems to me, a certain simplification to trace a path, and the idea of "Muscular Christianity" is so resonant a category that it might qualify. But the proof of how valuable it is that it opens up many others interpretative realms for our culture. I am really grateful to this marvelous scholar for his insights. On a personal note, I feel I understand life in our strange culture much better with these analyses as background. And, also, it must be said that the cover photo of a choral group at the YMCA in 1909 is just too good to be true!
The Strenuous Life 13 décembre 2012
Par Julie Ratcliffe - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I really enjoyed this book. It describes the entwining of athletics and religion from the 1850's to the mid-twentieth century.
The movement began with 19th century men's dissatisfaction with the church. They felt it was far too "feminized" and wanted a more virile religion. At the same time many believed that city-dwellers were weak and unhealthy. The cure for all of this was organized sports and camping for young men. The history of the YMCA and other clubs are well described. The term "Muscular Christianity" was coined in the 1850's, but it was not until the late 19th century that the ideal of the Muscular Christian was embodied in Theodore Roosevelt. This was mostly a white, middle- to upper-class phenomenon, but the book does touch on some African-American clubs and even a bit on "Strenuous Women".
This is an interesting and easy read. You don't have to be a scholar or a sports fanatic to enjoy it.

The best of what an academic book should be 20 octobre 2009
Par Gary Thomas - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is an excellent book; extensively researched, well-written, engaging, thoughtful and offering a fair treatment of an interesting movement in church history. Many of the issues are surprisingly relevant to today. Highly recommended.
