Editorial Reviews

Review

"“American Christianity is an engaging book, wide ranging and well informed. In touch with the living reality of America’s diverse traditions and with the surprising ways in which they have developed.”" (McCormick Messenger 2014-07-25)

"In this wide-ranging, well-written, and often witty book, Stephen Cox tells the tale of Christianity in America as a distinctively American phenomenon, and that means as a manifestation of freedom. Cox stresses the spontaneity and sheer unpredictability of religious developments in America. Refusing to explain religious phenomena in terms of non-religious causes, Cox looks at concrete examples of Christian movements and their leadership, and tries to understand them as they understood themselves. The result is an absorbing narrative, rich in anecdotal detail and enlivened by Cox’s feel for both the sublime and the ridiculous --all told in a supple and engaging prose. This book is cultural history at its best-- an analysis that never deals with theoretical abstractions but instead focuses on the individual actors and actions that stand at the heart of all human history." (Paul A. Cantor, author of The Invisible Hand in Popular Culture)
