Editorial Reviews

Review


"A thorough yet succinct account of the rise of religious pluralism amidst the birth of a new nation.... Establishes a valuable foundation to examine the religious roots of the 13 original colonies."--Today's Librarian


"There is a tendency in secondary American history textbooks to paint religion in colonial America as a type of grey, monolithic, uniformity. As Jon Butler so clearly and succinctly in his "Religion in Colonial America" informs us, nothing could be further from the truth....As current American society becomes more religiously diverse, Jon Butler's "Religion in Colonial America" is an important reminder that as a people, we have always been religiously diverse."--Religious Studies in Secondary Schools

Good information but poorly written -- repetitious and inefficient style. Poorly edited. More like a draft of a thesis -- not a final product.

Boring but had lots of good historical information on how religion helped shape America and the surrounding region. The writing is good and the book is easy to read if one is familliar with American history.
