Religious Resources in American Libraries and Historical Associations


Religious Resources in American Libraries and Historical Associations - Dr. Charles Dickson. The United States is easily the most religiously diverse nation in the world and perhaps in the history of the world. Immigrant groups coming from every nook and cranny of the globe have arrived on her shores bringing with them their distinct religious traditions. This handy volume provides a quick reference to the multitude of resources that are available on religious groups in American libraries and historical associations. This work focuses on the wider picture of state, local, and religious organizations. While many individual congregations maintain libraries, no attempt has been made to include them in this listing. Listings include: Adventist, Baptist, Brethren, Christian and Missionary Alliance, Christian Churches/Disciples, Christian Science, Church of Christ, Church of God, Eastern Churches, Episcopal, Evangelical Congregational, Evangelical Covenant, Evangelical Free Church, Society of Friends, Islamic, Jehovah’s Witness, Jewish, Latter Day Saints, Lutheran, Mennonite, Moravian, Nazarene, Pentecost, Polish National Catholic, Presbyterian, Reformed, Roman Catholic, Salvation Army, Schwenkfelder, Shaker, Swedenborgian, Unitarian-Universalist, United Church of Christ, and Wesleyan. Dr. Dickson has authored more than 500 articles and ten books. It is his hope that this handbook will provide a catalyst for historical research into American religious groups.
