Reviews - What do our customers think?
Primary source selections from the religions of and in America  Nov 30, 2007
A balanced selection of the diversity of religious expression found in America, from the Civil War, through WWI, WWII, the Cold War, the 1960s and beyond the year 2000. Contained herein are primary source selections on most every group of people making up this "one nation under God." This reader is a great resource to commence one's study of religion in America.
 
A Treasure Chest  Mar 25, 2005
The updated third edition of Gaustad and Noll's "Documentary History" is even more reader-friendly. "Church History Journal" has it right, "The most comprehensive set of documentary materials on American religion to date."

From the religions of the Native Americans, to the beliefs of the Puritans, to the thoughts of the Deists, to the religious experiences of women, to the worship of black slaves, and everything in between, the editors weave together a tapestry of the American religious experience. Truly "a treasure chest containing varied essentials of our country's past" ("Religious Studies Review").

Readers can expect to find four essential sections accompanying every reading. First, the editors provide an introductory overview of each time period, placing the readings in historical context. Second, they share a brief, enticing narrative introducing the author and the context for his or her writing. Third, they provide the writing itself, along with bibliographic documentation. Fourth, they conclude each section with an extensive annotated bibliography. For historical researchers like myself, wanting to do primary research, this section alone is "worth the price of the book."

"Documentary History" is a rare historical work due to its combination of breadth and depth. As already noted, Gaustad and Noll provide materials on every imaginable "religious group" within American history. Their selection and presentation demonstrates an unbiased commitment to fairly represent all traditions. To this breadth of coverage they add depth of selection-their readings are not mere paragraphs torn out of context. Rather, they are extended readings with enough material to gain a true picture of American religion-first hand, first person.

One might wish for more documents concerning the American Hispanic religious experience (one or two documents discuss American Hispanic Catholicism). The early immigration of Asians to the western United States before the Civil War could also have allowed for documents representing the Asian American religious experience. However, what we have remains a rich chronicle of the drama of American religious history.

Reviewer: Dr. Robert W. Kellemen is the author of "Spiritual Friends: A Methodology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," "Soul Physicians: A Theology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," and the forthcoming "Sacred Companions: A History of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction."
