Product description


"The Post-Secular in Question sustains the recent scholarly attention given to the contested and rather murky notion of post-secularism, although it approaches the topic in a more interesting way than many other works."-Religion Watch

"This book is an indispensible guide for those interested in developing a cross-cultural, historical appreciation of religion, a central concern for the founders of sociology...highly recommended for upper-division graduates and above."-CHOICE

"An important contribution to the vast literature on secularization and religion in contemporary society. Scholars interested in those important topics will find much value in the book."-Sociology of Religion

"The quality of almost all the chapters of this book is unusually high. One can learn things one didn't know and see them in a way one hadn't thought of by reading this diverse but very stimulating collection. The book does not solve the murky problem of the secular, much less the post-secular, but it gives new ways of thinking about them that have great promise as our work on these issues goes forward.”-Robert Bellah,author of Religion in Human Evolution: From the Paleolithic to the Axial Age

"In the last two decades we have witnessed constant deconstructions and reconstructions of the categories of religion, the secular, and now the post-secular. This volume is the best entry I know to the whole debate. It serves both as a perfect illustration of the shifting terrain and as a helpful analytical guide to its exploration."-Jose Casanova,author of Public Religions in the Modern World
