Consider the blessings and demands that await a consumer at any supermarket, with its dizzying array of choices to be made. Toothpaste, soda, laundry detergent — whatever. Every product comes in countless variations and competing brands.

Now take that decision-making burden and endow it with the high moral stakes of conflicting spiritual values.

Such has been the hurly-burly of religious observance in America. For four centuries, this has been a land where religious liberty was a notion held sacred, even as the nature of "liberty" was hotly debated.

The pursuit of liberty spurred breakthroughs in religious expression. The available options for religious observance were multiplying.

All of that is examined by "God in America," a sweeping three-night, six-hour survey of rough-and-tumble competition in what the series calls the religious marketplace.
