Editorial Reviews

Steve Schroeder
This excellent anthology of 21 recent essays by writers from the U.S. and Canada covers a wide range of perspectives on religious identity, while documenting what editor Treat refers to as a "significant new collective voice on the North American religious landscape." The authors write in a variety of styles and from diverse tribal, denominational, and academic backgrounds. All write out of their experience of various Christian traditions, but all affirm their identity as "native" people and challenge historical constructions of Christianity in North America." Some of the essays (e.g., those by George Tinker, Steve Charleston, Robert Allen Warrior, and Vine Deloria, Jr.) are already widely known. Others (including Emerson Spider's account of the Native American Church of Jesus Christ), are destined to receive great acclaim. This invaluable resource includes a fine bibliography.
