Hot Protestants

Kidd's evangelical Yankees are "cosmopolitan" only because they converse with other evangelicals elsewhere. The author misses a chance to compare George Whitefield's celebrity in America to that of Admiral Vernon in Britain as described by Kathleen Wilson because he is not interested in seeing the visitations of the Holy Ghost and the almost exactly contemporaneous celebrations of English bullishness abroad as analogous popular phenomena.

Kidd's portrait of Yankee evangelicals should keep his book in shops and on college syllabi for many years to come. Readers should not, however, expect a general history of early eighteenth-century New England or even a comprehensive treatment of religion in New England during the same period. Kidd tries to strike a balance between Anglicans and Congregationalists—he cannot and does not ignore the era's irenic impulses—but his focus on the latter pushes the former to the margins and toward ideological extremity. High Tories and churchmen seem to outnumber their moderate fellows. The latitudinarian strain in Anglo-American thought which Norman Fiering brought to our attention over twenty years ago barely rates a mention.

On the other hand, anyone interested in the New Lights will need to take up The Protestant Interest , though it should be approached in the company of Mark Peterson's The Price of Redemption Both texts bravely make the case for a continuous genealogy linking the Puritans to the evangelicals of the Great Awakening and beyond. The topical format of Kidd's book flattens the chronological narrative, but from sentence to sentence it is an easy and pleasurable read.
