From the Publisher:

Concise, yet thorough, this text introduces the vast variety of religious groups and activities - both ecclesial and popular - that make up the American religious picture in the 1990s. It presents the academic study of religion within the context of the humanities - discussing religion in a spirit of mutual exploration and learning, rather than in terms of what is 'right' and 'wrong.'
