Falling From the Faith brings together research on religious disaffiliation by leading sociologists of religion, exemplifying the current state of knowledge on an increasingly important subject.
The volume is divided into two main sections, disaffiliation from mainline churches and from alternative religious groups, emphasising the different approaches used to study each and suggesting issues for future work. The contributors suggest that the patterns of disaffiliation disclose a historic restructuring of the place of religion in the social order. The volume is thus a useful tool for sociologists interested in the study of religion in today′s society and an essential text for courses in religion.
