“Heath Carter has given scholars and students of American religion a gift. He has consolidated Gaustad and Noll’s classic into an accessible single-volume resource, while expanding the diversity of perspectives represented within. Expertly framed and clearly contextualized, this will be an indispensable volume for years to come.”
— Kathryn Gin Lum, Stanford University

“A classic is now even better. One could hardly imagine a combination better suited than Mark Noll and Heath Carter to update Edwin Gaustad’s much admired collection. Noll brings his unsurpassed knowledge of the field and Carter adds perspectives that are engaging a younger generation of historians. Many of the new additions are fascinating reading just in themselves. Teachers of American religious history will find this text ideally suited to their needs.”
— George M. Marsden, University of Notre Dame

“This updated collection of primary documents has been expertly pulled into a single volume to give a new generation of students access to a wide range of prominent religious voices. Beautifully narrated and carefully curated, these readings are thoughtfully chosen to showcase fundamental debates about the character of American religion.”
— Kate Bowler, Duke Divinity School

“Edwin Gaustad’s Documentary History of Religion in America has long been the gold standard for teachers who want to bring primary sources into their American religious history classrooms. In this new edition, Noll and Carter have somehow managed to improve upon a classic!”
— John Fea, Messiah College
