About this title

Synopsis:

This book brings together over 300 important readings on religion in modern times, offering a new framework and language for making sense of religion today.

From the Back Cover:

What has happened to religion in modern times? Why has it happened? What might happen next?

This volume is the first to bring together a comprehensive selection of readings which illustrate and analyse religion’s encounters with the forces of modernization – including nationalism, capitalism, colonialism, democracy, gender and identity politics.

Drawing on scholarly analysis, empirical research and vivid concrete examples, the book offers a picture of a religious world which is increasingly characterized by the coexistence of:


  • Old faiths and new spiritualities

  • A turn to tradition and a turn to experience

  • Decline and revival

  • Privatization and political militancy

  • Tolerance and intolerance

Religion in Modern Times offers a new framework and language for making sense of religion today.
