This classic work, winner of the 1973 National Book Award in Philosophy and Religion and Christian Century's choice as the Religious Book of the Decade (1979), is now issued with a new chapter by noted religious historian David Hall, who carries the story of American religious history forward to the present day.
Praise for the earlier edition:
"An unusual and praiseworthy book. . . . It takes a modern, almost anthropological view of history, in which worship is a part of a web of culture along with play, love, dress, and language."--B.A. Weisberger, Washington Post Book World

"The most detailed, most polished of the works in its tradition."--Martin E. Marty, New York Times Book Review

"An intellectual delight that one does not so much read as savor."--America

"The definitive one-volume study by the leading authority."--Christianity Today

"No one writing or thinking hereafter about America's past will be able to ignore Ahlstrom's magisterial account of the religious element."--American Historical Review
