Editorial Reviews

Review

The ambitious project of recasting the history of American Christianities has just begun; we should be grateful to Brekus, Gilpin, and their many collaborators for so effectively mapping a path and taking the first steps.--Journal of Southern Religion


Certain to broaden and deepen the understanding of both the specialist and generalist.--Catholic Historical Review


Essential reading. . . . A treasure of insight.--American Catholic Studies


A serious reader comes away with a sense of the excitement generated by recent scholarship.--The Living Church


College and seminary teachers could profitably use these essays to supplement a textbook or collection of documents. Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty; general readers.--Choice


This volume's essayists explore this paradoxical dynamic of dominance and diversity of a faith that is often perceived as homogeneous and monolithic.--American Catholic Studies Newsletter


American Christianities does an admirable job of illustrating just how diverse Christianity is and always has been in the U.S." --Anthropology Review

Review

Catherine Brekus and Clark Gilpin have compiled an outstanding volume that will be ideal for undergraduate and graduate classes in religious studies and American studies. This collection of essays provides readers with a renewed appreciation for the many ways that American Christianities have shaped culture, politics, social life, and worldviews while illuminating corners of American Christianities that have been missing from mainstream scholarship.--Diane Winston, University of Southern California
