Summary
"Examining both the theology of John Wesley, George Whitefield, and William Wilberforce and novels by Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Sir Walter Scott, and Bram Stoker as well as a host of 'Evangelical novels' of the period, Herbert analyzes the Evangelical and anti-Evangelical forces at play in Victorian literature and culture, challenging accepted notions of the impact of the Evangelical movement on gothic Victorian literature.
