Secularization and Religious Innovation in the North Atlantic World

Edited by David Hempton and Hugh McLeod

  • Provides a systematic comparison between the religious histories of the United States and western European countries from the eighteenth to the late twentieth century
  • Considers whether American Christians have responded to the threat of secularization in more innovative ways than their European counterparts, focussing on eight areas where developments have been particularly revealing
  • Each of these areas is considered by two scholars who focus on either Europe or North America
  • Offers rich cross-national and cross-cultural analyses
