BOOK EXCERPT:

Each Canadian Census reveals Canada to be an overwhelmingly religious country. With nine out of ten Canadians claiming a religious affiliation of some kind – Aboriginal, Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Islamic, Hindu, or one of dozens of new religions – faith has necessarily had an influence on citizens' personal and social lives. In Canada's Religions, Robert Choquette offers a history of religion in Canada and examines the ongoing tug-of-war between modernity and conservatism within the religious traditions themselves. Given that religion affects so many areas of daily life, including politics, education, community standards, and general behaviour, Canada's Religions provides academics, students, and educated readers with an excellent overview of the impact of religion on Canadian life. Understanding the various religions in Canada, argues Choquette, facilitates tolerance and acceptance, and eases the hostility that people may feel towards lesser known faiths. Through illustrative stories and in-depth research, Canada's Religions offers an invaluable resource, placing religion within an ever-changing social context and inviting the reader to a new level of understanding of Canada's religious faiths.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Organized along linguistic rather than denominational lines, it emphasizes the common experiences of the churches and the profound impact that Christianity has had on both French- and English-Canadian society and culture. Alongside the institutional development for the churches and the work of the clergy, it examines the religious outlook and practices of the laity, and how these have varied with gender, ethnic affiliation, and class; relations between denominations; missionary efforts, especially among the First Nations, and the responses to them; and the complex interactions between church and state.
