This book is a wealth of diverse knowledge that introduces students to the Christians of North America, covering the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Featuring 80 illustrations and a glossary of key terms, readers will encounter the very beginnings of Christianity in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, right up to present times. It is a fascinating story, where each geographical region has its own unique history, yetall of them are interrelated, under the banner of Christian faith.The book is divided into three sections: North American Christian Traditions, Race and North American Christianity, and Critical Issues. Individual chapters include African American Christianities, Christianity and politics, Christians and the abortion divide, Catholicisms, Protestantisms, and Evangelical Christianities, as well as religious freedom. Each chapter contains helpful pedagogical tools, such as a list of resources for further reading.The book explores how the First Amendment to the American Constitution separated religion from the state, and considers why the United States as a Christian nation has been a persistent narrative in America’s history.The chapters in this book were first published in the digital collection Bloomsbury Religion in North America. Covering North America’s diverse religious traditions, this digital collection provides reliable and peer-reviewed articles and ebooks for students and instructors.
