The Faith in the New World (2007 Deep In History Conference Talks)


When Christians came to establish their life in the New World, they naturally brought the particular form of their faith with them. Catholics established missions from Florida to California but eventually it was Protestant forms of Christianity that gained currency in the thirteen colonies. It was not until the mid-nineteenth century that Catholic immigration made a lasting impact on America. In these talks, the speakers recount various episodes and aspects of the story of the faith in the United States and Canada. There are many lessons for evangelization hidden in these stories.
