Completed revised and updated, this important study now includes a chapter on the resurgence of militant Protestantiam. 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.

Industry Reviews

"I used this as an outside reading assignment for an American history survey course....This book was a valuable contribution to our discussion on the topic."--Rick Williams, Lincoln Christian College "An exceptionally valuable study."--Thomas W. Ogletree, Yale University "I could not have chosen a better book. Handy's work provided an excellent paradigm for understanding the context for contemporary American theological issues such as fundamentalism, ecumenism, black theology, liberation theology, feminist theology, theological education, and civil religion."--David M. Rayburn, Palm Beach Atlantic College "An enduring contribution to American Church History."--James M. Washington, Union Theological Seminary "A thoughtful, provocative interpretation."--R.D. Linder, Kansas State University "One of the finest books available to generate discussion on contemporary religious issues in our society."--George H. Shriver, Georgia Southern College "Impressive and well received when it first appeared..., A Christian America will now enjoy an even wider success."--Church History
