9781138805569: Religion in America: The Basics


Religion in America is a concise introduction to the historical development of religions in the United States. It is an invitation to explore the complex tapestry of religious beliefs and practices that shaped life in North America from the colonial encounters of the fifteenth century to the culture wars of the twenty-first century. Far from a people unified around a common understanding of Christianity, Religion in America tracks the steady diversification of the American religious landscape and the many religious conflicts that changed American society. At the same time, it explores how Americans from a variety of religious backgrounds worked together to face the challenges of racism, poverty, war, and other social concerns. Because no single survey can ever satisfy the need to know more and think differently, Religion in America prepares readers to continue studying American religions with their own questions and perspectives in mind.

About the Author:

Michael Pasquier is Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Louisiana State University. His work on the history of religion in America has been supported by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Review:

"In seeking to introduce students to religion in America, this book skilfully navigates its way through a remarkable variety of people, institutions, events, and traditions over a short number of pages. Throughout, the writing is crisp, conversational, and sharp." Paul Harvey, University of Colorado, USA

"If there is one short book I would recommend to give everyone ‘a running start’ into religious literacy, this is it. Pasquier combines vanguard scholarship, easy reading, and new framing (starting with W.E.B. DuBois and ending with Bill Gates) to introduce readers to the people and histories behind the headlines of U.S. religion. Given how often American religion makes global news, we really need this book." Julie Byrne, Hofstra University, USA
