Publisher's Summary

Written primarily for undergraduate classes in American religious history and organized chronologically, this new textbook presents the broad scope of the story of religion in the American colonies and the United States. While following certain central narratives, including the long shadow of Puritanism, the competition between revival and reason, and the defining role of racial and ethnic diversity, the book tells the story of American religion in all its historical and moral complexity. Unlike similar history books, The Story of Religion in America pays careful attention to balancing the story of Christianity with the central contributions of other religions.

Just an introduction

Some of the historical findings are of values for such an introduction on religion in America. Also, I would say that the narration is decent, but not great. However, and this must be corrected in a second edition, there is an enormous mistake in the chapter: The French Revolution. The authors put king Louis the XIV as going to the guillotine in the 18th century as the anger against the monarchy was at its worst during the Revolution. Louis the XIV was on the throne for 72 years in the 17th century and is considered the longest reigning monarch, dying of old age. The authors should have been more diligent. The French king who was beheaded is Louis the XVI, or citizen Louis Capet and his wife Marie Antoinette, who suffered the same fate. I realise that the editing/printing could have missed the typo. Regardless, for a listener who knows French history, this mistake is major and needs to be corrected.
