Publisher's Description

Martin E. Marty argues that religion in twentieth-century America was essentially shaped by its encounter with modernity. In this first volume, he records and explores the diverse ways in which American religion embraced, rejected, or cautiously accepted the modern world. Marty writes with the highest standards of scholarship and with his customary stylistic grace. No series of books is likely to tell us as much about the religious condition of our own time as Modern American Religion. --Robert L. Spaeth, Minneapolis Star Tribune The wealth of material and depth of insight are beyond reproach. This book will clearly stand as an important meteorological guide to the storm front of modernity as it swept Americans into the twentieth century. --Belden C. Lane, Review of Religions Whatever one thinks about Marty's theological or philosophical position as a historian, the charm of his friendly circumspective approach to American religious history is irresistible. -- John E. Wilson, Theological Studies Marty attempts to impose historical order on the divergent ways a century of Americans have themselves tried to find order in their worlds. . . .
