1 Review
From its most cosmopolitan urban centers to the rural Midwest, the United States is experiencing a rising tide of religious interest. While terrorist attacks keep Americans fixed on an abhorrent vision of militant Islam, popular films such as The Passion of the Christ and The Da Vinci Code make blockbuster material of the origins of Christianity. Beneath the superficial banter of the media and popular culture, however, are quieter conversations about what it means to be religious in America today. Interfaith Encounters in America takes a compelling look at these seldom acknowledged exchanges.
