520    Perhaps surprising in a country without a national church,
       religion has played a powerful role in American life. Now,
       in the new paperback edition of Religion in American Life,
       three of the country's most eminent historians of religion
       offer a superb overview that spans four centuries, 
       illuminating the rich spiritual heritage central to nearly
       every event in our nation's history. Jon Butler begins by 
       describing the state of religious affairs in both the Old 
       and New Worlds on the eve of colonization. He traces the 
       progress of religion in the colonies through the time of 
       the American Revolution, covering all the religious groups,
       Protestants, Jews, and Catholics, as well as the unique 
       religious experiences of Native Americans and African 
       Americans. Grant Wacker continues the story with a 
       fascinating look at the ever-shifting religious landscape 
       of 19th-century America. He focuses on the rapid growth of
       evangelical Protestants--Methodists, Presbyterians, 
       Baptists, and others--and their competition for dominance 
       over religions such as Catholicism and Judaism, which 
       continued to increase with large immigrant arrivals from 
       Ireland, Eastern Europe, and other countries. The 20th 
       century saw massive cultural changes. Randall Balmer 
       discusses the effects industrialization, modernization, 
       and secularization had on new and established religions. 
       He examines Protestants, Hindus, Jews, Muslims, New Age 
       believers, Mormons, Buddhists, Roman Catholics, and many 
       more, providing a clear look into the kaleidoscope of 
       religious belief in modern-day America. Religion in 
       American Life is an engrossing look at how religion has 
       changed--and in turn been changed by--the extraordinary 
       events throughout American history
