Formed from This Soil offers a complete history of religion in America that centers on the diversity of sacred traditions and practices that have existed in the country from its earliest days.

  • Includes discussion of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic class, political affiliations, and other elements of individual and collective identity
  • Incorporates recent scholarship for a nuanced history that goes beyond simple explanations of America as a Protestant society
  • Discusses diverse beliefs and practices that originated in the Americas as well as those that came from Europe, Asia, and Africa
  • Pedagogical features include numerous visual images; sidebars with specialized topics and interpretive themes; discussion questions for each chapter; a glossary of common terms; and lists of relevant resources to broaden student learning
