"If the diversity of Enlightenments represented in this volume suggests a lack of consensus about how best to apply scholarship on the Enlightenment to ongoing debates about religion in public life, it also testifies to the unabating fruitfulness of the research agendas inspired by the imperative of doing so. Religious Enlightenment studies remains a field in full bloom."--The Catholic Historical Review
"[T]his interesting volume...investigates several new paths for trying to understand the multifaceted role of religion in this period."--H-Net
"Brilliantly illustrates how approaches to secularity beyond liberal secularism can reveal richer descriptions of Enlightenment. William Bulman's introductory synthesis and the contributing essays deserve serious attention from any reader who hopes to muster history in the service of understanding religion and secularity today."--The Immanent Frame
"A stimulating collection of essays by distinguished scholars who present often radically revised evaluations of the Enlightenment and the place of religion within it . God in the Enlightenment provides an exceptionally useful and illuminating investigation of new directions in Enlightenment scholarship. The book should be of interest to anyone interested in the historical roots of the contemporary world, and the place of religion in it."--Reading Religion
"This work shines with essays from an intellectual diversity of important scholars and often strikingly original perspectives. It not only addresses the increasingly problematic interaction of religion and the eighteenth-century Enlightenment in provocative and significant ways, it goes to the underlying issue of the place of God in Enlightenment debate, dilemmas, continuities, and reevaluations. This is a genuinely important collection." --Alan Charles Kors, Henry Charles Lea Professor History, University of Pennsylvania
