Michelle writes, "It was during the 1800's that the river of humanism began to cut a many-streamed delta across the western world: mankind believed his 'progress' placed him at the center of science, industry, philosophy, literature, etc., with the power to re-write life's most basically-held truths.
"But the fountain of spiritual renewal was also bubbling in a concern for missions, slavery, revival, and more."

"News of the American Revolution had given many freedom-parched Europeans a desire for liberty. Their problems were very real, but they had to decide who had the answers: God, Karl Marx, or the sophisticated humanism swiftly consuming even the Christian church."

"In all that, history was marching on: Napoleon's conquests, the Industrial Revolution, the Romantic Movement in art, the rise of socialism, etc."

"America was just a fledgling nation, facing the War of 1812 and then the fearsome Civil War/War Between the States. She never stopped growing though, as pioneers poured into the new Louisiana Purchase and down the Santa Fe and Oregon Trails."
