Professor and author, Tal Howard, hosts a book signing on his most recent book, "God and the Atlantic: America, Europe and the Religious Divide"


In March of 2011, Oxford University Press published Professor Tal Howard’s most recent book, God and the Atlantic: America, Europe and the Religious Divide, a study of transatlantic differences.

For those who might miss Howard’s lecture at Salem’s Old Town Hall, there will be a book signing held at Gordon College, 255 Grapevine Road, Wenham, Massachusetts, on Thursday, March 31, 2011 from 4-5 p.m. in Chester’s Place in the Lane Student Center. For further information about this event, please email ccs@gordon.edu.

God and the Atlantic looks at how and why Americans have maintained much friendlier ties with traditional forms of religion than their European counterparts,” says Howard. “It’s an historical exploration of what journalists and sociologists are calling ‘the transatlantic religious divide’.”

Though there are many polarizing issues in this complex debate, scholars such as Harmut Lehmann, former Director of the Max Planck Institute for History in Germany, praise Howard for giving historical depth to the topic. “Everyone interested in finding a way through the labyrinth of transatlantic comparisons and prejudice is well advised to read this book,” says Lehmann.
