A Christian America

Protestant Hopes and Historical Realities

Second Edition

Robert T. Handy

Completely revised and updated, this important study now includes a chapter on the resurgence of militant Protestantism. Concentrating on the traditional hope of Protestant Americans that the nation would eventually become fully Christian and the efforts they exerted to realize this hope, Handy examines the role of recent events in renewing interest in the idea of the U.S. as a Christian civilization.
