MEDIA REVIEWS

"LeBeau's extensive, detailed, and expertly written survey brings a wide knowledge, sympathetic understanding, and critical perspective to American religious history. The volume has particular strengths in the subjects of science and religion, free thought and humanism, and contemporary religious pluralism." Paul Harvey, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, USA

"It focuses student and faculty minds on important lessons of history from a particular time in history. Students who already believe that history is "one damn thing after another" are more likely to be able to say some definite things that they learned from the book and consequently the course using these texts as a result." - James Hudnut-Beumler, Vanderbilt University Divinity School
