Religion in American Life

I finished revising my lecture notes for my annual fall course, "Religion in American Life." I absolutely love American religious history, and look forward to teaching this course each fall.

The students will be using two required texts for the course:

The students will be taking weekly online quizzes from both texts, and I hope to reserve a significant portion of one day each week to discuss questions that I have developed from the primary sources in Marie Griffith's edited volume.

For my lectures, I have pulled the most information from the following books:
 I look forward to the start of the fall semester next week.
