The only multicultural survey of established and new American religions, this exhaustive three-volume encyclopedia explores the fascinating interactions between religion and ethnicity, gender, regionalism, and popular culture.


Religion and American Cultures offers a unique and engrossing journey across our country's religious landscape, past and present. A new spirit of religious diversity and multiculturalism stands alongside traditional institutions in this exhaustive three-volume set.

The first volume explores America's multicultural communities and their religious practices--not only Protestantism, Catholicism, and Judaism, but also Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam. Spirituality in Latino, African American, Native American, and Asian American communities is covered as well. The second volume focuses on cultural aspects of religions, with topics including film, Generation X, public sacred spaces, sexuality, new religious expressions, and much more. Organized alphabetically, longer general interest anchor essays in the first two volumes are followed by several shorter, more specialized supplementary essays. The third volume is devoted to complementary primary source documents. Written by more than 120 of America's most prestigious religious scholars, these insightful and intriguing entries address contemporary spiritual practice and culture with a historical perspective.


- More than 120 essays covering virtually every religion in America

- An expert panel of editorial board members and contributors on every major religion in the United States

- Richly illustrated images depicting a wide range of religious figures and activities, as well as significant religious sites in the United States

- An entire volume of primary source documents illustrating the religious diversity in American culture, including Cecil B. DeMille's essay The Screen as Religious Teacher as well as more conventional materials on Christian Science, the New Age, and Buddhism

Σελίδα 712 - God that holds you over the pit of hell, much as one holds a spider, or some loathsome insect, over the fire, abhors you, and is dreadfully provoked: his wrath towards you bums like fire; he looks upon you as worthy of nothing else, but to be cast into the fire; he is of purer eyes than to bear to have you in his sight; you are ten thousand times more abominable in his eyes, than the most hateful venomous serpent is in ours.
Σελίδα 4 - Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.
