On June 2, 2001, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported on Diana Eck's new book, A New Religious America (HarperSanFrancisco). "Eck describes a radical change in the religious landscape of America and the challenges that change presents to our history of religious tolerance...The fundamental question, according to Eck, is how far will our religious tolerance extend?...Much of Eck's well-researched, well-written and quite readable book presents a history of the growth of Buddhist, Muslim and Hindu religious practice in America."
