Christian Preaching, Worship, and Piety, 1559 - 1919 reflects how Christians lived out their faith in the form of sermons, worship, and piety. It features over 700 texts of either individual or collected sermons from over 400 authors, including Lyman Beecher, Charles Grandison Finney, Friedrich Schleiermacher, and Francis Xavier Weninger.

With the ATLA Historical Monographs Collection (11 Series), religion and theology scholars can focus their research on the era and topics that most closely fit their fields of study. Eleven thematic series provide researchers with specialized content spanning from the 13th century through 1922.

Researchers can view all of the typography, graphics and drawings as they were originally presented, which provides context and perspective to religion in American and world history.
