What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

A must-read volume for Americans concerned about freedom of religion in the US. Highly Recommended.—Choice



Enlarges the scholarly conversation about American religious pluralism and points to the importance of conducting that conversation across disciplines. . . . Extremely valuable and suggestive of additional future projects that place such comparisons at their center.—American Journal of Sociology



Pluralism is not simply the fact of our religious and cultural diversity, but also engagement with one another and with common public issues. This volume brings together an assembly of distinguished scholars from a range of America's religious traditions—all engaged with the American project of pluralism. It is a splendid book and a landmark achievement.—Diana L. Eck, Harvard University



Prothero is to be admired for tackling this topic.—Publisher's Weekly



This well-written book documents a change in the American religious landscape of which many are unaware: the presence of practitioners of Mideastern and Far Eastern religions within the American mainstream.—Multicultural Review
