Milton Wright (1828-1917), a United Brethren in Christ missionary, pastor, educator, editor, and later bishop, was widely known for his religious, political, and social commentary during America's post-Civil War era. Beginning with an introduction to Wright's life, A Higher Moral and Spiritual Stand: Selected Writings of Milton Wright presents 135 of Milton Wright's Religious Telescope editorials written between 1869 and 1877. The editorials reflect the depth of his thought and the breadth of his interests, including denominational struggles and successes, the relationship between personal piety and public morality, and concerns for both social order and social justice in what he hoped would become a truly Christian society.
