Book Reviews

In the recent months, book reviews have come out on my book Turning to Tradition and I think I have mentioned most of them here on the blog.  One I haven’t mentioned yet is this review by Dr. Amy Slagle in Review of Religious Research.  She highlighted how my book noted the variances in what “tradition” could mean as well as its importance for African American religious studies.  Her concluding paragraph reads:

“Of appeal to specialists of American religions and Eastern Orthodoxy as well as

educated lay readers, this study fills a lacuna in the historical scholarship of American

religions since few studies solidly devoted to Orthodox Christian history in North

America have been produced. This monograph enhances our understanding of Orthodoxy

in the United States as well as the standings and perspectives of traditional Christianity as

it is found in twentieth-century America.”
