From the Back Cover:

The past few years have seen a growing tendency by political and religious leaders to invent a homogeneous past--a golden age of perfect consensus on values and morals. Martin Marty shows that such a golden age never existed. In his exploration of religious diversity in the United States from the colonial past to the present, Marty takes seriously the fragile character and modest promise of American pluralism. He reveals how the vitality of the American experience has always depended on the fact that values and morals are generated in subcultures and worked out in a common society.

Review:

This collection demonstrates that Marty's separate interests and arresting insights...cohere in a powerful vision of late twentieth-century American culture, at once accepting its complexity and insisting on its uniqueness. —The Journal of Religion

"With characteristic clarity, Marty explores religious pluralism in a society that, though frequently acclaimed or decried as 'secular,' finds modern religious varieties flourishing." —Library Journal
