The Blackwell companion to religion in America

£75.00

Product description

This authoritative and cutting edge companion brings together a team of leading scholars to document the rich diversity and unique viewpoints that have formed the religious history of the United States.
A groundbreaking new volume which represents the first sustained effort to fully explain the development of American religious history and its creation within evolving political and social frameworks. It spans a wide range of traditions and movements, from the Baptists and Methodists, to Buddhists and Mormons Explores topics ranging from religion and the media, immigration, and piety, through to politics and social reform Considers how American religion has influenced and been interpreted in literature and popular culture
Provides insights into the historiography of religion, but presents the subject as a story in motion rather than a snapshot of where the field is at a given moment Over the past two decades, the writing of American religious history has finally blossomed to embrace some of the unique voices and viewpoints that have been ignored for too long. Reflecting this rich diversity of new perspectives,
The Blackwell Companion to Religion in America has gathered together dozens of prestigious scholars from across the field's generations. In a series of thought-provoking original essays, these leading contributors consider a wide range of issues relating to the presentation and explication of religious history in the United States. Topics addressed extend from religion and media to social reform; and the religious traditions explored range from Baptists and Methodists to Buddhists and Mormons. Each essay maintains an unwavering critical eye to enhance our understanding of how these subjects are discussed at different times during our history.
