Shows how the protestant experience is such an integral part of the history and culture of the United States

Protestants have been the dominant religious group since the colonial period, and they remain a vibrant and influential cultural force in the United States. But the term Protestant encompasses people with a vast range of beliefs, backgrounds, politics, and experiences, and this books provides an accessible introduction to this complex situation. The Protestant Experience in America lays out the history of Protestants in America, the core beliefs and common practices that they mostly share, the major events and controversies, and long-term trends for the future of Protestants in the United States.


"Amanda Potterfield's intelligent survey of American Protestant history is a worthy addition to the Greenwood series. . . The book offers illuminating, brief treatment of many aspects of internal Protestant life. . . the book makes informative reading for veterans and a good general survey for beginners."—The Journal of Religion, January 1, 2009
