"This book offers a genuine contribution to multiple fields of study, including American history, liturgical studies, and practical theology. It succeeds in deeply integrating and mutually illuminating these fields with wit, warmth, and wisdom. The challenge of ranging so widely across disciplines is remarkably met and mastered. Readers will reflect meaningfully on the many particular shapes of American religion and worship in their contexts of ethnicity, culture, class, and worldview."
