The first edition of this award-winning reference, published in 1977, contained 425 biographical profiles of the most significant American religious leaders. Bowden has added profiles for 125 additional figures, and the earlier sketches have been revised and updated. Each profile contains a capsule summary of the figure's life, followed by a discussion of the historical context of the figure's contribution and a bibliography of works by and about the individual. Appendices categorize the figures by religious denomination and place of birth. The dictionary contains entries for individuals who died before July 1, 1992, and reflects America's cultural and religious diversity.

The first comprehensive introduction to the Orthodox Church in the United States from 1794 to the present, this book includes a succinct picture of the distinctive history of Orthodoxy and its particular perspectives on the Christian faith. Attention is given to the contacts between the Orthodox Church and other Christian churches, as well as its contributions to the ecumenical movement. Over 80 biographies of major Orthodox leaders in America also are included along with an annotated bibliography of the writings of the major Orthodox theologians. The book begins with a review of the historical characteristics and distinctive faith affirmations of Orthodoxy, which has a history that is quite different from Roman Catholicism and Protestantism. Subsequent chapters examine the historical development of the Orthodox Church in this country, with special attention being paid to the early mission in Alaska, the effects of immigration, the organizational developments of parishes and dioceses, the effects of old world politics, the movement toward greater unity, and the distinctive features of American Orthodoxy today. The material is fresh and inclusive, covering all major branches and treating them with an irenic spirit. The biographies are thoughtful and informative, and there is a tremendous amount of bibliographic and reference material. Scholars, practitioners in every faith, and laypersons will find this volume indispensable.
