"A fascinating cast troops through this lively tribute to Donald Mathews—preachers, prophets, phrenologists, and a southern belle who brought the blues to Bloomsbury. Here is southern religious history in all its memorable variations."—Christine Leigh Heyrman, Robert W. and Shirley P. Grimble Professor of American History, University of Delaware
"Over a half century Don Mathews has probed tellingly the complexities and terrible ironies at the intersection of religion, morality, and race and gender relations, particularly in the bible belt. Reflecting his stature and continuing influence are the two dozen students who wrote dissertations with him. Here, in honor of their friend and mentor, two-thirds share their frequently exciting work in progress, often using biography as a lens."—David Moltke-Hansen, co-editor of Cambridge Studies on the American South
