Dissent in American religion by Edwin S Gaustad( Book )

11 editions published between 1973 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dissent in American Religion, originally published in 1973, was the first book to present religious dissent in the United States as a pervasive but hidden and often-ignored stream in American life. The first volume in the Chicago History of American Religion series, it reviewed the history of our nation's longest dissenting tradition - a tradition older and richer in the realm of religion than in any other facet of national life. Indeed, Edwin Scott Gaustad argued that religious dissent was essential to the character of the American religious experience and stood in profound disagreement with society's orthodox values and beliefs." "This new edition, which reinaugurates the Chicago History of American Religion series under the new editorship of John Corrigan, features new commentary by Gaustad and Corrigan on the past thirty years of American religious history and the importance of understanding dissent in American religion today."--BOOK JACKET

George Berkeley in America by Edwin S Gaustad( Book )

8 editions published in 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Berkeley-as-philosopher was--at least to the historian of early America--only a modest fragment of the whole man whom some Americans came to know and many more came to honor. Se early did George Berkeley enter into an unborn nation's cultural blood-stream that, centuries later, he has not been bled out. The story here recounted concerns the many-sidedness of that restless genius, particularly as it expressed itself in or left its mark on a portion of the New World

Proclaim liberty throughout all the land : a history of church and state in America by Edwin S Gaustad( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Should prayer be allowed in public schools? Should biology be taught according to Darwin or to the book of Genesis? Why is polygamy against the law? These are just a few of the questions that touch our lives directly and emerge out of the separation of church and state. In this volume, one of the most distinguished scholars of American religious history traces the complicated relationship of church and state from the early colonial period, through the unique American experiment in religious liberty after the Revolution, to the ongoing debate over religious issues in our schools and communities. Edwin Gaustad relates entertaining and edifying accounts of headline-grabbing court trials involving polygamy, witchcraft, and church taxation. He quotes moving passages from the speeches and writings of American Presidents and Supreme Court justices to prove that, to paraphrase Michelangelo, "religious liberty is made up of a series of trifles, but religious liberty is no trifle."
