"An excellent contribution to the social history of colonial religion. With great skill she weaves a narrative that demonstrates the inextricable relation between religion and politics in the colonies. I heartily recommend it, and look forward to using it for many years to come in the classroom."--Mark S. Cladis, Vassar College

"A good succinct study of the relation of politics and religion throughout the colonial period. Especially useful as a summary accessible to udergraduate history majors."--R.K. Donovan, Kansas State University

"[A] timely and thoughtful book."--New Republic

"A splendid overview of the topic of religion in the colonial period. The book is gracefully and economically written, provocative yet respectful of opposing views....Goes far toward providing a genuinely balanced account of the role of religion in the formation of the American mind."--William and Mary Quarterly

"Her depth of scholarship and documentation will please the scholar; her relation of her topic to American history in general will please the generalist, student or lay person; and her graceful writing style will endear her to all. The book is highly recommended."--History
