“For anyone interested in knowing more about the history and present state of scholarship on religion in America, this is an invaluable work, and the place to begin one’s search.” (Lutheran Quarterly, 2012)
"A remarkable achievement. This work draws on an impressive array of scholars of American religion to provide in brief and accessible form a series of introductions to key topics in the field, including excellent bibliographies. It should be on the desk of anyone who teaches about religion in America."
—Peter W Williams, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio
“These helpful and well-chosen essays supplement existing encyclopedias by focusing upon how the study of religion in America itself has changed. Students and scholars alike will appreciate the volume’s reflections on defining and studying the field, following it from its origins in ‘church history’ to the present-day mix of approaches, strategies, and new topics that characterize American religious history. In short, the Companion tells us how we got from there to here."
—Paula Kane, University of Pittsburgh
"An excellent addition to the field. It delineates the state of American religious historiography across a broad spectrum, with admirable sophistication and depth. Individual essays will be helpful to researchers of specific topics, and the volume as a whole will be an invaluable resource for scholars and students in American religious history for years to come."
—Marie Griffith, Harvard University
