Formed from this Soil: An Introduction to the Diverse History of Religion in America (2014) tells the story of the diverse sacred traditions and practices found throughout American religious history. Written as a textbook for undergraduate college classes, it tells a more inclusive story than the conventional tale of westward expansion and the triumph of Protestant Christianity. The book includes numerous “interpretive concepts” for students to gain new perspectives on the history of America.

Review of Formed from this Soil:

“Bremer’s text combines features that classroom teachers desire – including a clear chronological narrative as well as images and sidebars on fascinating historical characters and questions  – along with provocative challenges to conventional ways of thinking that students will bring to courses. The result is a text that should receive wide usage.”
–Paul Harvey, University of Colorado, author of Martin Luther King: A Religious Life
