Households of Faith Family, Gender, and Community in Canada, 1760-1969 Press Reviews

It is time that histories of religion and of families come closer together in Canada. This book builds on the work of such scholars as Lynn Marks to present a series of articles that treat this question in diverse and sometimes highly original ways.
