Covering North America’s diverse religious traditions, this resource provides reliable and peer-reviewed information for students and instructors of religious studies, anthropology of religion, sociology of religion, and history.

Peer-reviewed articles are organized around key themes for courses in religion in North America. 'The Basics' Sections cover broad global introductions to religious traditions suitable for introductory courses on Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and Buddhism. 'Religious Traditions' and 'Themes in Religion' Sections give more of an in-depth approach to the North American context and combine overview articles, main articles, case studies, hot topics as well as eBook content.

Topics include:

  • Activism
  • Colonialism
  • Diversity
  • Discrimination
  • Ethics
  • Gender
  • Identity
  • Interfaith
  • Politics
  • Race & Ethnicity
  • Secularism and Non-Religion
  • Society

Articles are categorized in the following ways:

  • Overview articles provide broad overviews of a top-level theme such as Christianity in North America.
  • Main articles provide introductions to a topic as well as discussion of key debates, theories, and controversies, such as Religion and Climate Change.
  • Case study articles provide contextual and concrete examples, which can be used for class discussions, such as Christians and the Abortion Divide.
  • Hot topic articles provide succinct overviews of important “hot” topics, such as Vaccinations and Religion.
