Religion in Colonial America

Jon Butler

Religion in American Life

Jon Butler begins by describing the state of religious affairs in both the Old and New Worlds on the eve of colonization--and traces the progress of religion in the colonies through the time of the American Revolution. It covers all the religious groups in the colonies: Protestants, Jews, Catholics, as well as the unique religious experiences of Native Americans and African Americans. Sidebars containing primary source documents complement the narrative text
