Overview

US scholars of religion in general, Christianity, Islam, and Baha'i describe and interpret the wide diversity of religion in the US, past and present, for general readers and non-specialist scholars. They examine Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and many new religions from perspectives of beliefs and practices, people and places in a historical context. They are less concerned with the development of religious institutions, and have sacrificed the detail found in more focused studies in favor of breadth. A few monochrome illustrations are included. Bibliographic references are article-specific. The cross- referencing is extensive. The two volumes are paged and indexed together. The first edition was published in 1996.
