Item description for You Have Stept Out of Your Place: A History of Women and Religion in America by Susan Hill Lindley...
Overview Susan Hill Lindley presents the story of women and religion in America from the colonial period through the mid-1990s. She demonstrates that just as religion in the traditional sense has influenced the lives of American women, so have the women themselves had a significant effect on the shape of American religion through the years.
Women throughout American history have repeatedly been accused of "stepping out of their places" as many have fought for more rewarding roles in the church and society. In this book, Susan Hill Lindley demonstrates that just as religion in the traditional sense has influenced the lives of American women through its institutions, values, and sanctions, so women themselves have had significant effect on the shape of American religion through the years.

A history that starts with Plymouth rock Aug 23, 2005
This book is a great overview of women, religion and social change in NORTH America. But I felt that it did not sufficiently cover Native American religous traditions, which is a significant component of our history. With that caveat in mind, I feel that Ms. Hill Lindley did a great job surveying an immense topic in a way that was interesting, readable and empowering. This is a great resource and jumping off point for studying how women and religion interacted throughout the history of the U.S.
