📙 A War with a Silver Lining: Canadian Protestant Churches and the South African War, 1899-1902 by Gordon L. Heath — pdf free


Gordon Heath's A War with a Silver Lining is a ground-breaking analysis of why the Canadian Protestant churches enthusiastically supported the war effort. Extensive archival research allows Heath to show how the churches' concern for international justice, the development of the nascent nation Canada, the unifying and strengthening of the empire, and the spreading of missions led to passionate and widespread support for the war effort. Providing a valuable link between Victorian and twentieth-century Protestantism, war, and the British Empire, A War with a Silver Lining is a revealing account of the significant role that churches played in nineteenth-century Canadian public life.
