Christianity comes to the Americas, 1492-1776 by Charles H Lippy( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 1,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1492, civilizations entirely unknown to one another dramatically confronted their differences along a line that eventually extended from Nova Scotia to Tierra del Fuego. Over three centuries, the religious, political, and economic pressures of Europe motivated a nearly complete cultural sweep over the entire Western Hemisphere. In Christianity Comes to the Americas, three distinguished historians retell, from the vantage point of the latest historical scholarship, the story that began in late medieval Western Europe and came to a conclusive turning point near the end of the eighteenth century. Stafford Poole brings to life the entire movement of Spanish and Portuguese conquistadores, mendicants, and missionaries throughout South and Central America, the Caribbean, Florida, Mexico, and the American Southwest. The accomplishments and anguish of such figures as Bartolome de las Casas, Sor Juana Inez de la Cruz, Antonio Vieira, and Juan de Zumarraga, among others, take center stage over the exploits of Pizarro, Cortez, Balboa, and Coronado. Robert Choquette tracks the French Catholic missionaries who crisscrossed the American continent, including Jesuit martyrs and Saint Marguerite Bourgeois of the St. Lawrence River Valley. He tells of missionaries shooting rapids and driving dog teams in America's vast hinterland and of Brother Andre performing miracle cures in Montreal's St. Joseph's Oratory. Charles H. Lippy follows the reform movements of Calvin and Luther as they extended to the settlements all along the Atlantic coastline. Lippy's narrative traces the dilemma of Puritan covenant ideology personified in the lives of Anne Hutchinson and Roger Williams, the vicissitudes of the colonial Anglican church, and the contributions of Quakers like William Penn, who bridged the ideals of Puritanism and the ideals of the Enlightenment. Christianity Comes to the Americas tells a complex story of grand ambition, great tragedy, and selfless humanitarianism. We see the visionary ideals of fervent men and women, the conflicts between soldiers and missionaries, and the sometimes brutal clash between colonizers and colonized over practices of nudity, cannibalism, torture, family relationships, worship, and conversion. All three historians write sensitively of the twentieth century issues spawned by colonial practices: slavery and ethnic persecution, ecological imbalance, isolationism, xenophobia, and regional independence, Christianity Comes to the Americas is solid, comprehensive history presented here in a single, masterful work

Pluralism comes of age : American religious culture in the twentieth century by Charles H Lippy( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning with the Victorian age and the end of the nineteenth century, Lippy's narrative moves through the shifting power of Protestantism and American Catholicism and into the period of immigration and pluralism that has characterized our country's religious experience. His later chapters include coverage of the Jewish experience, African-American religion, Native American traditions, the ecstatic personal expressions of conversion that mark the evangelical movements, the politics of religion, the proliferation of sects and cults, and the many strands of religious thought in this century."--Jacket
Being religious, American style : a history of popular religiosity in the United States by Charles H Lippy( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular religion rarely expresses itself in the artifacts of ''high'' culture. In this book, Lippy approaches the study of popular religion by asking how ordinary people have gone about the process of being religious in America. Along the way, he examines popular religious periodicals, newspapers, novels, diaries, devotional materials, hymnals, promotional materials for revivals and camp meetings, religious tracts, as well as vernacular art and architecture, other artifacts, and, especially in the twentieth century, radio, film, and television. He avoids the traditional focus on religious movements and institutions, choosing instead to illuminate the cultural impact of what people in America think and do when they are being religious by highlighting aspects of private life

The evangelicals : a historical, thematic, and biographical guide by Robert H Krapohl( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The different facets of American religious life are more thoroughly understood with an awareness of the Evangelical heritage that intersects the different denominational boundaries. Since Evangelicalism is not confined to one religious denomination or group, it has associations with a number of American religious movements such as Fundamentalism, Pentecostalism, the Charismatic Movement, and Revivalism. This study, modeled after the popular Greenwood Denominations in America series, analyzes the people, institutions, and the religious culture of modern American Evangelicals. Divided into three
Encyclopedia of religion in the South( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The publication of the Encyclopedia of Religion in the South in 1984 signaled the rise in the scholarly interest in the study of religion in the South. Religion has always been part of the cultural heritage of that region, but scholarly investigation had been sporadic. Since the original publication of the ERS, however, the South has changed significantly in that Christianity is no longer the primary religion observed. Other religions like Judaism, Buddhism, and Hinduism have begun to have very important voices in Southern life. This one-volume reference, the only one of its kind, takes this expansion into consideration by updating older relevant articles and by adding new ones. After more than twenty years, the only reference book in the field of religion in the South has been totally revised and updated. Each article has been updated and the bibliography has been expanded. The ERS has also been expanded to include more than sixty new articles on religion in the South. New articles have been added on such topics as Elvis Presley, Appalachian music, Buddhism, Bill Clinton, Jerry Falwell, Fannie Lou Hamer, Zora Neale Hurston, Stonewall Jackson, popular religion, Pat Robertson, the PTL, sports and religion in the South, theme parks, and much more."--Jacket

Do real men pray? : images of the Christian man and male spirituality in white Protestant America by Charles H Lippy( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Do Real Men Pray? Charles H. Lippy argues that American men have always exhibited a deep and profound spirituality. He challenges the popular belief that men somehow cannot match the profundity found in female spirituality. Instead, Lippy lays out a convincing counter argument that the United States has a long and pronounced history of male spirituality. Do Real Men Pray? takes the reader through a chronological history of male spirituality from the colonial period to the present day."--Jacket
Faith in America : changes, challenges, new directions( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last 25 years, there has been much talk of the presumed "decline" in religious participation in America. In addition, from the 1960s on, surveys that mark the "influence" of religion in American life have shown a mixed response. Many suggest that religion is losing influence in the culture as a whole; others indicate that while organized religion may be experiencing challenges, spirituality is on the upswing. At the same time, however, there have been signs that religious life in the U.S. is extraordinarily healthy. But religion in America has changed, to be sure, in a number of ways. And it has changed us and our culture in return. This timely set looks at the major forces that are changing the shape of religion in American life
