In this comprehensive and fascinating discussion of the history and evolution of religious communication in the United States, Professor Cotham has provided a lexicon of a wide range of speakers--from early colonial preachers to modern-day religious and spiritual leaders. Fortunately, the text has included an examination of various non-Christian religious leaders and speakers including American Muslims, Native Americans, and American Jews. Women, African-Americans- national political speakers are included as are writers, artists, and even entertainers.While well-researched and amply illustrated, the text is narrated with an engaging and readable style that appeals both to university students and general readers. What an excellent classroom text! And what a welcome addition to the library of anyone seeking to understand how religious communication has been instrumental in shaping our American history and our American culture! --Margaret McCree, Professor, Middle Tennessee State University
