Summary This history shows complex relationships among American religious communities as well as the growth of distinctive theological ideas and religious practices. The result of this development in North America is a rich religious culture that includes representatives of most of the world's religions. Volume 3 examines the religious situation in the United States from the end of the Second World War to the second decade of the twenty-first century, contextualized in the larger North American continental context
