From the Introduction of the book:

"The religious differences between Europe and the United States are typically described in terms of beliefs and practices:  Europeans are far less likely than Americans to join and attend houses of worship or to believe in heaven and hell.  This book, however, focuses on religious knowledge...It begins with this paradox:  Americans are both deeply religious and profoundly ignorant about religion...One of the most religious countries on earth is also a nation of religious illiterates."
