Religious Change in America

Andrew M. Greeley

ISBN 9780674758414

Publication date: 09/01/1996

Many observers assume that America is a much less religious nation than it was forty years ago. According to Andrew Greeley, however, this is simply not true. Carefully analyzing surveys conducted over the past half-century, Greeley concludes that rates of church attendance, prayer, church membership, activity in church organizations, belief in life after death, and other measures of religious involvement have remained surprisingly constant.


  • There is no other book that assembles so much survey data for the last fifty years of American religion in such a brief and convenient format.

    —Religious Studies Review


  • Andrew M. Greeley is Professor of Sociology at the University of Arizona, a Research Associate at NORC, and a best-selling novelist.
