Overview

A Documentary History of Religion in America since 1877 / Edition 3

With some exceptions, Noll (Christian thought, Wheaton College, Illinois) focuses on the chronological development of Christianity in the United States, although he does include a comparative chapter on Canada and Mexico. Synthesizing the work of other scholars, Noll describes the activities and beliefs of major sects of Christianity, looks at important events such as the Great Awakenings and the involvement of the Black Southern Baptists in the Civil Rights movement, and discusses how some American non-Christians related to Christianity. After the chronological treatment, a few chapters are devoted to such broad issues as the differences between North American and European theologies and religious lives, as well as the day-to-day lives of American Christians.
