This chapter argues that as orators the evangelical clergy participated in one of the most significant public activities related to honor in the Deep South. The goal of southern oratory was both self-mastery and the mastery of others, and evangelicals fashioned a unique style that celebrated the orator’s humility alongside his power as he sought to awaken the deep recesses of human identity to the truth of the gospel message.
