Publisher Description

First published in 1896, this unsung masterpiece of American literature details the rise and fall of a Methodist minister in upstate New York. Part of Belt’s Revivals series and with a new introduction by Ruth Graham.

The Damnation of Theron Ware is the story of a young pastor who comes to a small town in the Adirondacks to spread the gospel. Once he gets there, his congregation slowly leads him down a path of secular enlightenment, encouraging him to question the very same scripture he has devoted his life to. Through new friends, he has encounters beautiful art and music and gains new insights into the world of Darwinian science. But when he finds himself carried away by these fresh new experiences, where they lead him is not at all what he expected. 

A forerunner of the classic naturalistic novels of the early twentieth century, Harold Frederic’s work is considered one of the great American novels of his time, a book that belongs on the same shelf with Stephen Crane, Frank Norris, and Theodore Dreiser.
