From the Back Cover
This Second Edition represents Bellah's summation of his views on civil religion in America. In his 1967 essay Civil Religion in America, Bellah argued that the religious dimensions of American society--as distinct from it churches--has its own integrity and required 'the same care in understanding that any religion does.'
