Book Description:

This lively and highly accessible book presents a fascinating picture of belief in the western world. Drawing on an in-depth locality study of religion and spirituality in the English town of Kendal, Cumbria, this book addresses the most pressing question in the study of religion today: are new forms of spirituality overtaking traditional forms of religion, particularly Christianity? By combining pioneering findings from Kendal with existing evidence from the USA and Europe, this book shows that there is a good deal to support the claim that a spiritual revolution is well underway in the UK and arguably even further advanced in the USA. In explaining this development, the volume offers a new theoretical approach to the study of contemporary religion which can help make sense of both secularization and sacralization, and which leads to some startling predictions about the future of religion and spirituality in the west.

From the Back Cover:

Are we living through a ‘spiritual revolution’ in whichtraditional forms of religion are giving way to new forms ofspirituality? Are yoga, reiki and other forms of holistic practiceset to become more popular than churchgoing?


This book addresses these questions by presenting findings froma major research project designed to chart the state of religionand spirituality today. Though it finds little to support moreextreme claims of change, it discovers that spiritualities whichengage with the depths of personal experience are faring far betterthan religions that demand conformity to higher truth. Thesedevelopments are explained by drawing attention to the significanceof a ‘subjective turn’ in the wider culture –whereby conformity to external obligations becomes less importantthan sensitivity to inner life and wellbeing.
