Summary
At the heart of the nation's spiritual history are audacious and often violent scenes. But the Puritans and the shining city on the hill give us just one way to understand the United States. Rather than recite American history from a Christian vantage point, Peter Manseau proves that what really happened is worth a close, fresh look
Summary
The author of Songs for the Butcher's Daughter examines the religious history of America from the Puritans and the books of Thomas Jefferson to the Salem Witch Trials and the cults of the 1960s and the rise of non-traditional Christian politicians today.
