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 TribuneThe 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.

Wilson, Theological StudiesMarty attempts to impose historical order on the divergent ways a century of Americans have themselves tried to find order in their worlds. . . . [He] meets the challenge deftly. . . . It is a book relevant to our time. . . . Engages the heart and mind jointly.—Andy Solomon, Houston Post
