Editorial Reviews

Review

"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


"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


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


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


"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


"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

Book Description

"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
