Religion in America
Religion in America gives students and teachers a comprehensive yet concise introduction to the changing religious landscape of the United States. Extensively revised and updated, the Sixth Edition continues to engage students in reflection about religious diversity. The author presents the study of religion within the context of the humanities as a tool for developing understanding and appreciation of communities of faith other than one’s own, and for understanding the dynamics at work in religion in the United States today.
