With nine out of ten Canadians claiming a religious affiliation of some kind - Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Aboriginal, or one of dozens of other religions - faith has huge impact on our personal and social lives. In this book, Robert Choquette offers a comprehensive history of religion in Canada and examines the ongoing tug-of-war between modernity and conservatism within the religious traditions themselves.
Robert Choquette has studied, taught, researched, and written about religions in Canada for over forty years. His previous books include The Oblate Assault on Canada's Northwest and Christianity Comes to the Americas. He is a professor of Religious Studies at the University of Ottawa.
