"Hoosier Faiths" surveys the history of more than fifty denominations and religious groups in Indiana from pioneer days to the present. In addition to profiles of internationally known religious centers, such as Notre Dame and Saint Meinrad, and mainline congregations of Catholics, Methodists, Baptists, Lutherans, Presbyterians, and Episcopalians, among others, "Hoosier Faiths" includes sections on Jews, Muslims, Shakers, Rappites, Mennonites, Pentecostals, Mormons, Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Christian Scientists, who contributed significantly to Indiana's diverse and flourishing religious heritage. L. C. Rudolph describes the founding and development of each religious group, highlights major personalities and issues, and summarizes the group's present status. An appendix of statistics on church membership and Kim Charles Ferrill's thirty-two handsome photographs of religious institutions around the state further enhance this major reference work.
