During the early part of the 20th century, a coalition of members of several denominational traditions known as Mainline Protestants shaped the public religious culture of the United States. At the end of the century, however, Mainline Protestantism was widely perceived to be in “decline.” This study guide by Maria Erling provides an overview of extensive scholarly and general investigations of these changes. Erling is associate professor of the History of Christianity in North American and Global Missions at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
