Religion in a Changing World: Comparative Studies in Sociology


Twenty-eight scholars, many of them well known in the sociology of religion, examine a variety of faith traditions and sociological topics that illustrate the connection between religion and society in many different countries at the dawn of the 21st century. The faith traditions include Judaism, Roman Catholicism, evangelical and mainstream Protestantism, Islam, Hinduism, Yoruba religion, Chinese religion, and several new religious movements, including a UFO cult in Quebec.
