"Robert Mathisen has compiled an absolutely superb and remarkably comprehensive collection of documents. The Routledge Sourcebook of Religion and the American Civil War at once becomes the indispensable volume for both scholars and students interested in exploring the vitally important role of religion in the nation’s greatest crisis. It is far and away the best collection of primary sources on Civil War religion in a single volume."
―George C. Rable, author of God’s Almost Chosen Peoples: A Religious History of the American Civil War
"This is a most welcome compilation of a sweeping range of documents – sermons, prayers, addresses, letters, songs, poetry, memoirs, other reflections – that encompass how Americans conceived of the Civil War through religious language and imagery. The volume should immediately find its way into classrooms across the country."
―Paul Harvey, author of Freedom’s Coming: Religious Culture and the Shaping of the South from the Civil War through the Civil Rights Era
"Robert Mathisen has gathered a superb collection of representative documents to demonstrate the pervasive presence of religion in nearly every aspect of the Civil War. This outstanding resource by no means shows that Americans agreed on the religious meaning of the conflict. It does demonstrate conclusively that Americans of all kinds brought religious perspectives to bear on the great national struggle. This very full sourcebook should delight ordinary readers as much as it will serve professional historians. It is a rare and invaluable treasure."
―Mark A. Noll, author of The Civil War as a Theological Crisis
