American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us
A Special Book Launch
Unique among nations, America is deeply religious, religiously diverse, and remarkably tolerant. But in recent decades, the nation’s religious landscape has been reshaped. Join best-selling author Robert Putnam for a discussion about American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us. Based on two of the most comprehensive surveys ever conducted on religion and public life in America. It includes a dozen profiles of diverse congregations across the country, illuminating how the trends described by authors Putnam and David Campbell affect the lives of real Americans.
Come and engage in a challenging and complex topic; one that divides and unites Americans across the country. Nearly every chapter of American Grace contains a surprise about religious life in America. American Grace promises to be the most important book in decades about our cultural religious life and an essential book for understanding our nation today. Robert Putnam is also the best-selling author of Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community.
