Religion and Public Life in New England: Steady Habits Changing Slowly
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungAlthough stoical New Englanders may not be showy about it, religion continues to play a powerful role in their culture. In fact, their very reticence to discuss religion may stem from long-standing religious divisions in the region. Examining Catholics and Protestants, as well as Conservative Protestants, African Americans, and Jews, this third volume in the Religion by Region series provides a very readable account of religion in this most regional of U.S. regions.
