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
