Editorial Reviews

Todd Johnson and Brian Grim have produced a synthesis of statistics and commentary that will stand as a landmark in the quantitative study of world religions.”  (Journal of Contemporary Religion, 1 October 2014)

“A very scholarly book with huge amounts of data included in it but with a major contribution to the methodology of taking forward religious demography as a discipline.  The World’s Religions in Figuresis strongly recommended for any library with a focus on religion, sociology or world politics.”  (Reference Reviews, 1 October 2014)

“Todd Johnson and Brian Grim have produced a synthesis of statistics and commentary that will stand as a landmark in the quantitative study of world religions.”  (Journal of Contemporary Religion, 1 August 2014)

“And in my opinion, this book is a must read for everyone interested in the field of international religious demography.”  (Journal for the scientific study of Religion, 10 June 2014)

"This book is a comprehensive introduction to religious demography, both by way of method and by way of data and results.”  (International Journal for Religious Freedom, 1 October 2013)

“It is a technical, critical volume.  For those who are seriously engaged in demographic studies and the manner in which international religious traditions have developed, and are now developing, this book will have value and significance.  It is a remarkable achievement.”  (Association for Mormon Letters, 1 September 2013)
