Editorial Reviews

Peter Haggett

The Place of Religion in Chicago is a clearly written account of a little-studied aspect of American landscape. Based on unique field surveys and supported by photographs, tables, and beautifully crafted maps, the book will form a lasting contribution to our understanding of an overlooked element of the American urban scene: the religious landscape of a major metropolis.”—Peter Haggett, University of Bristol

M. Beth Schlemper

“Zelinsky and Matthews offer a detailed study of Chicago’s religious landscape, one that is illustrative of the diversity that exists at the national scale. The research is quite comprehensive, and the book will be a great resource for academic and non-academic professionals. It will certainly make an important contribution to the study of religion in America—such an in-depth examination of an urban area’s religious geography is original and a welcome addition to the literature.”—M. Beth Schlemper, University of Toledo
