Format: Hardcover
This book, by Professor Robert D Putnam and David E Campbell, presents a comprehensive study of religious beliefs and practices in the USA, and provides a detailed overview of an important aspect of American culture. Data was collected as part of a two-step interview survey (Faith Matters 2006, 2007)) which involved more than 3000 respondents across the USA. The series of findings presented make for interesting reading. Consider:

* Between one third to one half of all marriages are interfaith;
* Young people are more opposed to abortion than their parents, but more accepting of same- sex marriage;
* Jews are the most broadly popular religious group in the USA today;
* Roughly one third of Americans have switched religions at some stage.

The findings affirm the importance of organized religion: more than 83% of Americans report that they belong to a specific religion; 59% report that they pray at least once a week and 40% report attendance at weekly services. At the same time, the traditional role of religion has been challenged by `the sexually libertine 1960s' which subsequently resulted in `a prudish aftershock of growth in conservative religion, especially evangelicalism, and an even more pronounced cultural presence for evangelicals, most noticeably in the political arena.' Professors Putnam and Campbell assert that this evangelical revival, which began to recede by the early 1990s was sparked more by deeply personal moral concerns than by hot-button political issues: `Abortion and same-sex marriage are the glue holding the coalition of the religious together.'

`How has America solved the puzzle of religious pluralism - the coexistence of religious diversity and devotion? And how has it done so in the wake of growing religious polarization?

This is an excellent sociological study of religion in America. It should be very helpful to all students of religion, and is filled with facts that will be especially interesting to clergy and other spiritual leaders.
