About the Author:

He is a member of the Departmental Resources Group of the ASA, which among other activities involves consulting work with departments of sociology on curriculum and on teaching issues. He is the author of Religion in Sociological Perspective, now in its fourth edition, and co-author a monograph on Writing in the Undergraduate Sociology Curriculum. He has served on and chaired several ASA teaching committees, has chaired the Teaching Committee of the North Central Sociological Association, and is active in the ASA Section on Teaching and Learning.

Keith has taught a rather wide range of sociology courses at a two-year campus (15 years) and more recently at a very competitive small liberal arts college.

Review:

“Roberts and Yamane have written a book which has the clearest presentation of sociological concepts of any sociology of relgion text I've read. It is comprehensive in scope, has a clear, lively, and interesting writing style, and is sensitively presented in a "non-preachy" way.”

(Matthew Vos 2011-04-27)

“I have looked at a number of other texts for an introduction to the sociology of religion. Roberts continues to be the best one out there.” (Samuel Inuwa Zalanga 2011-04-27)
