9780918954923: New Religious Movements and Religious Liberty in America

New nontraditional religious movements are the most likely groups to offend mainstream culture and the least likely to have representatives in government to ensure that their liberty is protected. These new religious movements are sometimes ostracized and subject to various forms of discrimination. As America becomes increasingly pluralistic, with more and more groups contributing to the nation's religious mosaic, new religious movements may well play an increasing role in the course of religious liberty in America, just as groups such as the Jehovah's Witnesses did formerly. This book explores the problems and possibilities posed by new religious movements for religious liberty in America.

Review:

"This excellent treatment of contemporary developments on the religious scene offers fresh insights into the dynamics of new religious movements and will help to relieve one's anxieties about their baneful effects. After all, Christianity was once a new religion, and the freedom we demand for ourselves must also be allowed to these faiths. In today's secular world we stand side by side in the struggle for religious liberty."―Richard V. Pierard, Indiana State University, and Scholar in Residence, Gordon College
