Summary

Religion in Modern America synthesizes a broad range of empirical and theoretical research to present a new approach to the sociological study of religion in contemporary American society. Draws on new and recent research in the sociology of religion to synthesize a new set of orienting questions about religion in twenty-first century America Challenges outmoded sociological views that religion in the U.S. is contained in local communities and identifiable religious institutions by focusing on transnationalism, pluralism, secularism, and religious production Provides examples and concepts with which readers can raise and answer questions about religion in ways that previous studies of religion leave out
