Product Description

What has happened to religion in modern times? Why has it happened? Wat might happen next? This volume is the first to bring together a comprehensive selection of readings which illustrate and analyse religion's encounters with the forces of modernization--including nationalism, capitalism, colonialism, democracy, gender and identity politics. Drawing on scholarly analysis, empirical research and vivid concrete examples, the book offers a picture of a religious world which is increasingly characterized by by the coexistence of: old faiths and new spiritualities, a turn to tradition and a turn to experience, decline and revival, privitization and poltical militancy, and tolerance and intolerance.

Editorial Reviews

"Taken as a whole, this anthology is highly illuminating. Despite its size, it is eminently readable. It is detailed, well structured, and well argued, compiled by editors who "know their stuff". However, a great strength also lies in the fact that it can be "dipped" into and used as a tool for examining particular issues or for exploring interesting avenues. It is thought-provoking and provides the reader with options for further reading and research. Although the intention of the volume is ambitious, it provides both the benefits of an edited collection as well as well-argued analysis. It is an important, innovative work that is very timely." Journal of Contemporary Religion
