With a title that references the biblical description of peace and prosperity, this book examines attitudes of Southern Baptists (and their denomination and convention) toward the profound social, moral, economic, and political changes the South faced in the post-Civil War era. Rufus Spain's seminal work laid the foundation for subsequent studies of religion in the American South. Spain drew from reports of the Southern Baptist Convention and
religious journals and newspapers to support his claim that Baptists typically resisted social change and did not confront the problems of their day.
