Great Books on (American) Religious History, 2013 Black Jesus/Santa edition

Paul Harvey

I know you've been waiting for it, and here it is -- my baker's dozen list of some of my favorite works in American religious history for 2013 (ok, and a couple from 2012 that I'm inducting into the 2013 Hall of Fame). We've got the relics of 17th-century Jesuit martyrs and their varying fortunes over four hundred years; we've got Communist Christs; we've got Scientologists; and we've got liberal Christians and an author getting exorcised on a Benny Hinn tour of Israel. Something for everyone, I hope.
