Summary

Summary

The Social Uplifters examines the Social Gospel among Canadian Presbyterians prior to the First World War. The book explores the theology, social context, and the strategies of the leaders of the Presbyterian Board of Evangelism and Social Service (C.W. Gordon, James A. Macdonald, Robert Falconer, T.B. Kilpatrick, George Pidgeon, and John G. Shearer). Brian Fraser describes how these men used popular fiction, the secular press, the university, the theological college, the pulpit, and political organization and lobbying to spread their ideas and ideals for a Christian civilization in Canada at the turn of the twentieth century and will be of interest to students and scholars alike.
