Donald G. Jones
The Sectional Crisis and northern methodism: a study in Piety, political Ethics, and Civil Religion
The Scarecrow Press, Inc, Metuchen N.J. & London 1979

This is the Jesse Lee Prize Essay for 1979.

Jones examines the Northern Methodists after the Civil War. He has a good review of civil religion as it applies to mid-century Americans, but his primary focus is on the 1860s and 1870s.

Not useful for the dissertation, but if I ever write a second volume on civil religion then I will have to read this.
