The Chance of Salvation deftly captures the chaotic nature of American religion in the 19th century… Mullen helps us see how a distinctly evangelical approach to salvation had ripple effects beyond evangelicals, and he should be commended for it.—Josh McMullen, Christianity Today

Americans switch religions more frequently than people from just about any other nation. Mullen connects this phenomenon with the distinctively, though not uniquely, American idea that religion is a choice rather than an inheritance… This well-written and innovative work will be enjoyed by students of American religious history and those interested in investigating the deeper historical roots of contemporary American spirituality.—Brian Sullivan, Library Journal
