Using theology as a mode of thought and inquiry, “Theologies of American Exceptionalism”—an open-access book edited by Winnifred Fallers Sullivan and Elizabeth Shakman Hurd—brings together fifteen essays that explore a broad range of perspectives on “the vagaries of exceptionalist claims in and about the United States.”
Part of a project on the “Politics of Religion at Home and Abroad,” supported by the Henry R. Luce Initiative on Religion in International Affairs.
Theologies of American Exceptionalism is a collection of fifteen interlocking essays reflecting on the vagaries of exceptionalist claims in and about the United States. Loosely and generatively curious, these essays bring together a range of historical and contemporary voices, some familiar and some less so, to stimulate new thought about America. A print version of this volume will be available in summer 2020. This volume is the first in a book series titled “Religion and the Human” hosted by the IU Center for Religion and the Human.
