New Religious Movements in Western Europe: An Annotated Bibliography

By Elisabeth Arweck; Peter B. Clarke | Go to book overview

sub-Saharan Africa - with little attempt on the part of the 'new' proselytising religion to retain cultural continuity with the faiths of those they sought to convert. In other respects the model is imprecise and difficult to operationalise and this applies to propositions three, nine and ten in particular. If appropriate refinements were to be made to the model taking these considerations into account, it might well provide a useful research tool.

Whether or not they are highly successful, NRMs are not only worth studying in their own right and from the perspective of the student of religion, but also for what they say about the wider society in which they seek to establish themselves and which many of them seek to save from itself. At the same time, it needs to be emphasised that there is little that is permanent or static about the NRMS, making prediction as to future trends extremely difficult and unwise. However, there is perhaps one point that can be safely made and that is that as the year 2000 gets ever nearer, the millenarian theme, already a prominent one, will become even more pronounced. Such predictions apart, NRMs reveal much about the character of religion in contemporary society and about society itself. Moreover, scholars in various fields - anthropology, history, media studies, political science, psychology, sociology, religious studies and theology - have already begun to acknowledge the benefits, principally in the areas of theory and method, that the study of NRMs can provide ( Sharma, 1994).
