496 }EARLY AMERICAN LITERATURE: VOLUME 52 , NUMBER 2 golden calf of neoclassical economics. Even so, and to continue the biblical metaphor, Literature Incorporated does not quite deliver the reader to the Promised Land. RIChARd R. jOhN Columbia University Revolutionary Religion, with Five Sermons, 17741777, 2nd ed. Edited by dAVId R. wILLIAMs Washington: Orchises Press, 2016 159 pp. A constant within the ever-evolving field of American religious history is the provocative result of mixing religion with politics. This mixture is perhaps most volatile where the history of religion and the politics of the country's founding era are concerned. Since the early nineteenth century, Americans have demonstrated a keen interest in depicting the country's founding as either deeply religious or purely secular. In this persistent culture war, David R. Williams has presented readers with a new edition of a book he first published in 1984: Revolutionary Religion, with Five Sermons, 17741777. As its title clearly indicates, Revolutionary Religion consists of five sermons preached by American clergymen between 1774 and 1777, with an introductory essay by Williams. The five clergymen whose sermons are featured therein are Samuel Sherwood of New York, Nicholas Street of Connecticut, John Lewis of South Carolina,
