This book looks at religion from a global perspective and examines how religion is shaped by the larger set of political and economic relationships that make up today’s world. Focusing mainly on Western religion and on the changing role of the United States in world affairs, the authors show how shifts in the hegemony of the United States is affecting religious and ideological trends. Attention is given particularly to the United States in relation to Latin America, South Africa, and the post-colonial world of China, Japan, and the Islamic states. This volume highlights the impact of greater global connectedness on the rise of new religious movements and changing patterns of establishment religion in the United States.

Review:

“Clearly, this is one of the hot topics across a variety of disciplines. Moreover, it is not just popular in the faddish sense, but it represents one of the truly seminal issues for scholars concerned with deciphering world trends and their meaning for peoples from first to third world nations.” ― William R. Garrett, St. Michael’s College
