Editorial Reviews

‘If a single theme runs through this anthology, it is an appreciation of the process of secularization. Here, however, secularization does not trumpet the demise of religion but provides a lens through which to scrutinize the shifting location and function of religion in urban, industrial, complex societies. Of value as a reference tool at all readership levels.’ Choice <!--end-->


‘The volume takes the reader immediately to the most interesting issues currently debated in the discipline.’ International Review of Biblical Studies

"This is a milestone of a book." Journal of Contemporary Religion

"Within the cover there is a very stimulating companion indeed - a more than adequate travel guide for any student or scholar seeking a lively and insightful introduction to the contours of the sociology of religion." BSA Network
