About the book:

Methodists to Congregationalists, Mormons to Jews, Church of God to the International Church of the Foursquare Gospelthe story of religion in the United States is in large part the story of its paradoxical religious organizations. Through both words and maps, The Atlas of American Religion brings coherence to the shifting picture of 200 years of American religious history. From independence to the present, the Atlas charts the evolution of the 39 major denominations and sects in the U.S. Also, Newman and Halvorson offer a new five-fold typology categorizing religious organizations. Their definitions of national denominations, multiregional denominations, classic sects, multiregional sects and national sects brings new precision and clarity to our understanding of religious organizations. And with 92 two-color maps depicting this changing religious landscape, the Atlas of American Religion makes an indispensable reference for anyone interested in the sociology or history of the religious experiment that is the United States of America.
