This chapter discusses religious pluralism in America. Topics covered include religious diversity in America; the difference between pluralism and diversity; theological and civic perspectives of religious pluralism; and Ten Commandments cases. It argues that pluralism is the dynamic process by which we engage with one another in and through our deepest differences. For some, the engagement will be in the religious or theological register; for others it will be in the civic register; for many or most of us, it will be in both.

Keywords:   immigration, religious diversity, United States, theological register, civic, register
