Reviews

"Forcinelli contends that crises in the history of America have conditioned our religious experience. Five crises loom large in his scheme; the Revolution, the Civil War, imperialism, the two world wars, and the adversarial atmosphere encountered by America in many of its relationships since. This democratization has strengthened religious freedom in America and caused religion to flourish. Because religion reflects the democratic spirit, Forcinelli argues, it is certainly a needed subject for educational study. His arguments are convincing in this thought-provoking book."- SSC Booknews
