Description: The Christian church is a ubiquitous fixture of the American religious landscape. Even as the United States boasts the worlds most diverse religious population, its history and culturally unique heritage cannot be understood outside the bounds of the history of American Christianity. In Histories of American Christianity, Christopher H Evans delivers a chronological and thematic survey of the significant "Christianities" that have taken shape within the United States since its founding. Evans expertly traverses the broad scope of the American Christianities, highlighting the significant stories and individuals within both well-known traditions and sometimes marginalised communities. This introduction provides a thought-provoking reflection on the cultural, social, historical, intellectual, political, and even popular ways Christianity has impacted this religiously plural nation.
