What is fundamentalism? Essentially, it is an adherence to the literally interpreted Bible as fundamental to life and teaching. In his book, Fundamentalism and American Culture, George M. Marsden attacks the daunting question of “How has the fundamentalist movement managed to resist the pressures of the scientific community and the draw of modern popular culture to hold on to their ultra-conservative Christian views?” Not only does this History textbook answer that pressing question, but it also tells the incredible, encouraging tale of how Christian principles CAN survive in a godless world. From the first chapter, Marsden notes fundamentalism’s steady march through American history.

Reform and Renewal: Utopian Experiments in 19th Century America Since the dawn of human civilization, man has harbored an intense fascination with the idea of ‘utopia’–a perfect society devoid of pain and suffering. The ancient Greeks celebrated the natural paradise of Arcadia; Chinese poets described the ethereal Peach Blossom Spring; Christians, of course, spoke of the Garden of Eden. Coined in 1516 by Sir Thomas More, the term ‘utopia’ comes, in fact, from the Greek word for ‘nowhere.’ Nevertheless, man has stubbornly persisted in his endeavors to create heaven on earth. In the United States, the 19th century in particular marked the high point of utopian experiments.

For factory owners and businessmen life was good because they would make a large profit from the factories production but for the factory workers life was horrible.
