Since the earliest explorers set foot on North American soil, myriad cultures and movements have shaped American Christianity. From sixteenth-century Spanish Catholics to New England Puritans and Wesleyan revivalists, the history of these diverse groups is the history of the American church.
Edited by acclaimed scholars Phillip Schaff, John Hurst and other world-class historians and clergy, The American Church History Series tells the stories of denominations and Christian movements that have molded the national religious landscape. Each writer recounts the history of his own tradition—without resorting to hagiography or glossing over scandals and controversies. Get an inside look at the influential figures, ecclesiastical polity, and theological distinctives of Presbyterian, Baptist, Roman Catholic, Quaker, Lutheran, Disciples of Christ, Universalist, and other churches. Plus, Leonard Woolsey Bacon’s A History of American Christianity paints the broad strokes of American Christian history, and H.K. Carroll’s The Religious Forces of the United States provides a portrait of American religious life at the end of the nineteenth century.
