This classic work, winner of the 1973 National Book Award in Philosophy and Religion and Christian Century's choice as the Religious Book of the Decade (1979), is now issued with a new chapter by noted religious historian David Hall, who carries the story of American religious history forward to the present day.
From the Back Cover
"An unusual and praiseworthy book. . . . It takes a modern, almost anthropological view of history, in which worship is a part of a web of culture along with play, love, dress, and language."-B.A. Weisberger, Washington Post Book World; "The most detailed, most polished of the works in its tradition." --Martin E. Marty, New York Times Book Review; "An intellectual delight that one does not so much read as savor."-America; "The definitive one-volume study by the leading authority."-Christianity Today; "No one writing or thinking hereafter about America's past will be able to ignore Ahlstrom's magisterial account of the religious element." - American Historical Review

Good for american history/church history buffs, very informative
The paperback edition is fine quality publishing, with an excellent Foreword by David D. Hall
This point becomes even smaller when compared to the many strengths of this book. It is amazingly comprehensive for a single volume. And though it is over 1,000 pages it reads easily. It also has a fine index and can be used for reference on specific topics as well as reading from front to back. This is a strong book and belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in the religious life of America.
