"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--enures 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."--Harry Stout, professor of American religious history, Yale University"Written by one of the most distinguished American religious historians of this century, this volume provides a lively and comprehensive overview of the long American quest for the sacred....A book that both instructs and delights....Combines a panaramic vision with wonderful close-ups of America religious deversity."--E. Brooks Holifield, professor of American church history, Emory University"A superb job."--Winthrop Hudson, author of "Religion in America"
