Chapter Summary

The formal separation of state and religion in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, one of nine amendments added to the Constitution within two years of its ratification, is central to any understanding of the religious situation in the US even to the present day. Protestant-Catholic-Jew was the title of a book published by Will Herberg in 1955. It was simultaneously an attempt to describe and critique the American religious situation. Among Christians, one of the most significant groups is Arab Christians. This group has not been unknown in the US heretofore, but the numbers have swelled significantly and in areas of the country where they have been present in significant numbers in the past.

Keywords: Arab Christians; Protestant-Catholic-Jew; US immigrant groups
