Divining America

Paul Harvey

Here's a great teaching resource that I had sort of forgotten about, even though it's on the blogroll to the left: Divining America: Religion in American History, from the "TeacherServe" at the National Humanities Center. It has expanded recently with a number of newer essays, and although meant for more introductory levels, scholars in American religious history who can't keep up with the latest in every subject will find these short essays to be a great guide. For example, Darren Staloff contributes a nice piece on Deism and the Founding of the U.S., and Christine Leigh Heyrman surveys The Separation of Church and State from the Founding to the Early Republic, and Randall Balmer explores Apocalypticism in American Culture. Check it out, there's something for everyone.
