Endorsements & Reviews-

"A welcome addition to the ongoing reflection on the meaning of religion in America. The authors are both responsible as scholars and accessible as writers. Teachers, students, clergy, and laity will find this book worthwhile. It deserves a wide reading."
-- Ronald A. Wells, Professor of History, Calvin College; editor, Fides et Historia

"This is a most welcome update of the first textbook survey of American church history. The American Church Experience retains all the virtues of the original--brevity, clarity, and evenhandedness--while incorporating recent historical developments and contemporary historical scholarship."
--Michael S. Hamilton, Associate Professor of History, Seattle Pacific University

"Specialists and general readers alike should welcome this valuable new resource in American religious history. I certainly plan to recommend it to my students."
--Garth M. Rosell, Professor of Church History and Director of the Ockenga Institute at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"Captures the ebb and flow of religious history in a scholarly and precise way while retaining a highly readable quality. Students will be challenged and laypeople will be informed about America's fascinating religious heritage. This book is a must for the pastor's study and for the church library."
--Ruth A. Tucker, author of From Jerusalem to Irian Jaya: A Biographical History of Christian Missions

"Tom Askew and Dick Pierard provide a lively and succinct account of the origins, expansion, and struggles of the faith in America. Their analyses are enhanced by commendable balance and a healthy global perspective. This volume will prove to be an excellent resource for church study groups as well as for undergraduate and seminary classes."
--James A. Patterson, Professor of Christian Studies, Union University
