Product Description

In this landmark work, award-winning Princeton historian Leigh Schmidt teams up with eminent American religious history scholar Edwin Gaustad to produce a fully revised, updated, and expanded version of a modern classic.

First published in 1966, The Religious History of America made the religious dimensions of our common history readily accessible to a generation of readers. This edition remains true to the literary grace of earlier editions as it expands its scope, increasing the emphasis on pluralism, religious practices, and spiritual seeking, as well as the direct connection of religion to social and political struggle. The authors have updated the structure of the text, replacing the five distinct ages of Gaustad's previous editions with a more explicit emphasis on specific historical markers, carrying the multifaceted story of religion in the United States into the twenty-first century.

Extensively illustrated, and with a new emphasis on African-American and Native American religious life, Eastern religions, and the recent boom in spirituality, this new edition of The Religious History of America is a masterful rendition of the heart and soul of the American story.

"My generation of graduate students was the first to enjoy the benefits of Edwin Scott Gaustad's Religious History of America which held an essential place on our shelves next to the honored Williston Walker. How wonderful that in its new and expanded format, Gaustad will become the indispensable 21st century tool for the students of American religion." -- Peter J. Gomes, Harvard Divinity School, Cambridge

--Dr. E. Brooks Holifield, Charles Howard Candler Professor, Emory University
