Editorial Reviews

Review

Vibrantly illustrates the sometimes conspicuous, but more often insidious ways, in which religious intolerance has shaped American life. . . . A unique and essential volume.--Journal of Southern Religion

A welcome corrective to traditional tales of religious accommodation. . . . Recommended.--Choice

Corrigan and Neal define religious intolerance and explore its history and manifestations.--American Catholic Studies Newsletter

Review

When we describe our country as welcoming to all peoples and religions, we downplay the history and reality of intolerance. This volume makes a significant contribution through the juxtaposition of the mythic aspects of American history--its virtues and the notion of 'American exceptionalism'--against the everyday realities of religious intolerance. The editors' nuanced presentation of this paradox is fresh and creative, and will touch chords in readers' experiences.--Wade Clark Roof, author of Spiritual Marketplace: Baby Boomers and the Remaking of American Religion|This volume demonstrates the ubiquity of bigotry, prejudice, and narrow-mindedness among a surprisingly wide-ranging portion of the American population from the colonial period right up to the present. The editors' introductions to the cases and documents serve as means for instructors to drive home the rudiments of religion, such as orthodoxy, heresy, and apostasy. In addition, the book's organization provides an unexpectedly useful review of the important dimensions of our country's religious history.--Jan Shipps, author of Sojourner in the Promised Land: Forty Years Among the Mormons

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Corrigan's work on religious tolerance is a particularly useful resource for any thoughtful study of religion in America. I purchased the Kindle edition for use in preparing a discussion for a Florida Humanities Council series on Muslim in America. It proved to be a godsend. What emerged from the book was a pattern that continues to be evident today of intolerance arising out of demographic shifts, national security questions and concerns for market share in a religiously voluntaristic culture. If there is any weakness it is in the lack of examples of colonial intolerance outside the English colonies (I would point to the Catholics and Huguenots in Florida as an example). However, the groups chosen were well-developed and the use of original texts to illustrate added much to the presentation.

This book is an outstanding asset in understanding religious politics throughout all of American History. If your professor requires this book, they know what they're doing.
