The Churching of America
A 2 page paper on the major thesis of the book “The Churching of America 1776-2005” by Roger Finke and Rodney Stark. Who are the specific ‘winners’ and specific ‘losers’ and why? How is this book helpful in our understanding of American Religious History and traditions? You do not have to read the book word for word. That is difficult in any academic setting. Read for the thesis and examples and read so that you can write your paper on what the specific assignment calls for. I, also, need to see page numbers from the text in your paper. Example: (p.12) I do not need author names, year of publication and title–just the page #. Short, pithy quotes from the text creatively show page numbers. All assignments are most specific and clear. Your papers also need to be specific and clear.
