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
