The Old Religion in a New World: The History of North American Christianity chronicles the arrival of Christianity in the New World, tracing turning points in the development of the immigrant church that led to today’s distinctly American faith.
Taking a unique approach to this fascinating subject, Mark Noll compares the practice of Christianity on the American continent to European Christianity, focusing on what was new about organized Christian religion in the New World. Noll provides a broad outline of the major events in the history of the North American Christian churches and also highlights some of the most important interpretive issues which arose in the transfer of Christianity from Europe to America.
