Braun, Mark E.
MetadataShow full item record
This essay by Mark Braun is presented in two parts. In the first part, he provides data, without comment, on religious trends in America. The second part offers analysis of those trends, and examines various religious “groups” (evangelicals, “mainline” protestants, Catholics and Jews, “no preference,” and adherents to other religions), the trend towards “spirituality” as opposed to “religion,” and the search for an “American Jesus.” He concludes by presenting the “Lutheran difference.”
