Description - One Nation Under God? by Marjorie Garber
Is America a religious nation? A nation of many religions? Is there an American religion? One Nation Under God is a remarkable consideration of how religion manifests itself in America today. Drawing on the extraordinary diversity of America's cultures, this gathering of distinguished scholars considers such subjects as the nature of public religious expression, African American civic virtue, the relation between law and religion, religion in secular society, the Holocaust Memorial, the cloistered closet, cults of death, and the sacralization of Elvis. Piety and popular culture, public space and private, the secular and the sacred all converge in America's religious experience.
