From the Author:

In this book I have responded to calls for a new narrative about American religious history by regarding America as a place of religious encounter, conflict, and creative engagement involving native peoples of the Americas, people from Africa, from Europe, from Asia, and from virtually everywhere else in the world who found themselves thrown together on American soil. It portrays the history of religions in America with more emphasis on the diverse, global, and conflictual nature of the American people than typically depicted in most previous works that tend to stress the dominance of Protestant Christianity as the main story of American religious history.

From the Back Cover:

Formed from This Soil offers a complete history of religion in America that centers on the diversity of sacred traditions and practices that have existed in the country from its earliest days. The text is organized chronologically, starting with the experiences of the earliest Europeans searching for new routes to Asia and continuing through to the global context of post-9/11 America in the 21st century. 

Offering students more than a traditional narrative focused on the Puritan and Protestant Christian experience, this text incorporates recent scholarship for a more complex and nuanced picture of religion in America. Chapters discuss the diverse religious beliefs and practices that originated in the Americas, as well as those that came from Europe, Asia, and Africa. In addition to discussion of traditional components of religion, including religious people, communities, practices, and beliefs, the text also covers race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic class, political affiliations, and other elements of individual and collective identity.

Written accessibly, the text has a number of features that broaden students’ learning experience, including numerous visual images; sidebars with specialized topics and interpretive themes; discussion questions for each chapter; a glossary of common terms; and lists of relevant resources. Offering broad and inclusive coverage, this is an exciting new exploration of one of the most foundational topics in American history.
