Inventing American Religion. Polls, Surveys, and the Tenuous Quest for a Nation's Faith.
Oxford University Press, 2015. 256p. Hardback. Robert Wuthnow has produced another informative, provocative, and important book. Partly a history of survey research about religion in the United States and partly a sustained criticism of low-quality surveys and naive interpretations of survey results, Inventing American Religion provides an opportunity to ponder again the strengths and limits of surveys and the ways in which surveys help to construct, rather than merely reflect, developments in American religion.
