If you like both Religions and social data, this book will fascinate you. Packed tight with charts, interesting facts and thoughts to ponder, its also a good reminder of how Americans as a whole are unique in the global religious landscape. And guess what? The "nones" are not atheists. They are simply anti-religion likely because they grew up in a religiously divisive time. Another area for the church to ponder.

One of the most lucid and comprehensive analyses of religion from the 1950s to present. Fascinating and very readable. I liked the alternation of statistical information and vignettes.

Although parts of this book were extremely dense with both data from surveys and analysis of that data, American Grace was a fascinating read. Religion and politics seem more intertwined now that at almost any previous point in American history, and the authors do a thorough job of looking at how they got that way, and both how political attitudes are likely to affect religion, and how religion affects political attitudes.
