9780060630942: A Religious History of America

For over a quarter of a century, Edwin Scott Gaustad has been a leading voice in the study of American religious history. This history-revised, expanded, and updated-ensures that his voice will persist into the 21st century. No reader can go away from this lucidly written text without suspecting the possibility that his modestly titled A Religious History of America is, in fact, The religious history of America.
