Lived Religion in America, edited by David D. Hall

David D. Hall addresses the gap between academic theology and the diverse ways people of faith “live religion” in their circumstances. Hall’s book shares an interest in the religion of daily life with such recent books as Practicing Our Faith, edited by Dorothy Bass, and Common Fire: Lives of Commitment in a Complex World, by Laurent A. Parks Daloz et al. Bass’s book gives familiar names to practices that have strengthened the lives of believers and their communities of worship, while Common Fire shows how such practices have created and transformed communities in the complexity of contemporary life.
