From Our Editors

An important feature of this revised edition is the discussion of the revival of hope for a Christian America since the publication of the first edition in 1971. Handy notes that the surprising resurgence of conservative evangelicalism during the past decade has led some to believe that their ideal of a Protestant America may soon be realized, yet he concludes that the increasing pluralization of religion in America has not been significantly reversed.
