This introduction lays out the way that previous histories of evangelicalism in the South have described the conflict between honor and evangelicalism, rooted in their very different ways of conceiving and constructing individual identity, one premodern and the other usually assumed to be the essence of modernity. It then lays out the argument for evangelicalism instead as a kind “cultural bridge” between two ways of seeing the self, and defines honor and evangelicalism in the way they will be used in this book.
