Specifications

Each volume in the Faith in America set narrates the story of one faith and its history in America, focusing on how each has impacted the nation and how, in turn, American culture has shaped each religion. The series explores topics such as the impact of Protestant churches and philosophy on early America; the influence of the Catholic Church on education; the continuing involvement of Jewish congregations in the arts and business; and, more recently, the lives of Muslim-Americans in the context of world events.

Reviews and Awards

"This [set] will be a useful resource for middle and high school libraries and many public libraries...the entire set is well done and provides valuable information."
American Reference Books Annual

"Recommended for high school libraries offering the American experience of faith, and in public library collections seeking to offer works that present American religion in a comprehensive, nonsectarian manner."
Christian Library Journal

Summary

The Faith in America set narrates the story of faith and its history in America, focusing on how different faiths have impacted the nation and how, in turn, American culture has shaped each religion.

Coverage also includes historical and contemporary leaders of each faith.
