First published in 1945, this book was originally intended as 'an implied conversation' between the American Willard Sperry and his British audience in order to convey 'some idea of the present state of religion in America'. Sperry examines the separation of Church and State as enshrined in the Constitution and its consequences, as well as providing a general survey of religious groups in America and 'American theology'. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the role of religion in American life.
