Four key insights frame the book: Christianity in America is chiefly a story of popular movements, is influenced by conflict and engagement with modern ideas, directly affects public life, and expresses its identity and seeks its mission in a pluralistic culture. Unlike many histories, Koester offers ample coverage of Protestant, Evangelical, and Roman Catholic developments, and the ecumenical focus is further strengthened in this newest edition."@en ;
