Course Description:  For two centuries the U.S. has operated a free marketplace of ideas which allows different generations and groups to seek different responses to their spiritual and religious needs.  Change is a constant feature so whatever you learned about religion in the U.S, a generation ago is out of date.  Whether you are a political consultant, a marketer, a religious leader or a social scientist, it’s impossible to fully understand American society today without understanding what’s happening to religion in America.
