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
