Bellah began his vocation as a scholar of Japan. Tokugawa Religion and a more recent collection of essays, Imagining Japan. focus on this society’s cultural roots in relation to modernity.

A large slice of his work – including his most influential essays “Religious Evolution” and “Civil Religion in America”– is found in The Robert Bellah Reader (2006), which Bellah co-edited with Emory University Professor Steven M. Tipton. Centering on the effort to understand the modern world with the United States as exhibit A – and critical of modernity’s cognitive-evaluative and faith-knowledge divides – Bellah says that this Reader is, “a collection that reflects my work and my life: my scholarship in sociological theory and in a variety of cultures and societies; my engagement, not only in the life of the university, but also in ethics, politics, and religion.”

In 2000, President Clinton awarded Bellah the National Humanities Medal and, in 2007, he received the American Academy of Religion Martin E. Marty Award for the Public Understanding of Religion.
