Religion and American Culture 1865-present

Balmer, Randall Silver_nugget
Religion and American Culture 1865-present

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I can't understand why the Religion department decided to let Balmer teach all this material as one semester survey. He is obviously only interested in discussing modern evangelism and its manifestations, which is surely interesting, but makes it all the more obvious that the rest of the material is what he has to cover out of a sense of duty or political correctness. The best part about the class was it was over after 45-50 minutes.

Workload:

five short response papers (try to compress a huge vague survey into four pages and still make a point), very easy midterm and final
