Ian J Shaw Publisher: Oxford ; New York: Oxford University Press, English View all editions and formats Summary: This contribution to the debate about the relation of religion to the modern city fills a gap in the historiography of early 19th-century religious life. It provides a pioneering study of local churches in the urban environment.

He reaches into the past and the future to show the changing facets of Calvinism as well as the response of Calvinists to urban needs. The initial chapters are a framework for the rest of the book and are important as a basis for the biographical chapters that follow.
The one on high Calvinism is crucial to understanding the theology presented. The chapter on evangelicals and the inner city is an interesting look at the development of Sunday school and literacy programs in urban areas and shows the activity of evangelicals in relief of poverty. The congregations of the ministers included in this study had a strong working-class contingent in their churches or were situated among working-class people. Religious activity among these people was an important part of their ministry and spilled over into their concern for the poor.
The core of this book is Shaw's doctoral theses at the University of Manchester and accounts for the chapter and emphasis on Manchester. There is no separate chapter on London, the contrasting city in the book, but the city is discussed within the biographical chapters. One of the contrasts Shaw makes is the difference between the political theologies of the two cities. The high Calvinists in Manchester were more concerned with their local community, while the high Calvinists in London had a strong nationalistic sentiment.
