ChurchState Relations in the Early American Republic, 17871846. By James S. Kabala. (London: Pickering & Chatto Press, 2013. Pp. 264. Hardcover, $99.00.) Reviewed by Tara Thompson Strauch Scholars tend to tell the story of religion and American politics either as an intellectual history of politicians or as an ecclesiastically centered religious history. This book by James Kabala looks instead at the creation of a Protestant consensus in the public sphere and thus escapes the somewhat artificial divide between political and religious thought. By looking at the decades between the Constitution and massive influx of Catholic immigrants in the late 1840s, Kabala isolates the immediate consequences of the Constitution's inconclusive statements on the relationship between Church and State. Rather than analyzing Jefferson's ``wall of separation'' or Washington's ``religious awe,'' although this book talks about both, Kabala looks at the realities of proliferating denominations and religious outsiders such as Indians, deists, Jews, and atheists. Such realities caused tensions between the secular federal government and the less secular states
