Resources for American Christianity

This site is currently archived as a resource for the Christian community.

Previously, this website sought to assist leaders and participants in Christian communities, scholars and other interested public in better understanding the impact, trends and trajectories of Christianity in American society. By providing both information and reflection on selected projects funded by the Lilly Endowment Inc., it offered a unique vantage point for discerning the character and contributions of this tradition within American religion and culture.

This site is also a work in progress. Its database contains only a small fraction of the projects that the Lilly Endowment Inc. Additional clusters of projects and products as well as more essays, interviews, study guides and issues of the newsletters, Initiative in Religion and InSites into American Religion are available in the archives.
