New Anthology on Liberal Religion in America

Leigh Schmidt and Sally Promey have produced a new edited anthology of scholarly essays, aptly titled American Religious Liberalism.  With essays by scholars such as Emily Mace, Matthew Hedstrom, Kathryn Lofton, Yaakov Ariel, the volume is sure to be of great interest to historians of American religion.  This is just the latest in a flurry of recent publishing on liberal religion, as the forty-six page long (!) review section in the latest Journal of Unitarian Universalist History makes abundantly clear.  And there’s more in the pipeline for this year, so expect a similarly impressive review section in the 2013 issue as well.

  1. I already had this book on my want list, and on your recommendation I will move it closer to the top of the list (even though I suspect I already have more unread books than I can possibly read in my lifetime). thanks.

  2. Transient and Permanent

    I may be in that situation too…
