This is a new text for the sociology of religion course. Instead of surveying the field systematically, the text is organized around a set of big questions that generate the most discussion and debate in the sociology of religion field. Big questions covered in the text, include:

  • Whatever happened to the so-called 'decline of religion'? Explaining religious vitality in today's world.
  • Why is there a rising tide of fundamentalism around the world?
  • How have recent waves of immigration changed the landscape of religion in the US and elsewhere?
  • What are we to make of innovative ways to get your religion? -Mega-churches, televangelism and the crystal shop around the corner
  • Is religion a force for social change or a tool of the status quo?
  • Can democratic political systems accommodate growing religious diversity?
  • If religion teaches love, how can it lead to violence?
  • How are sex roles, gender identity and definitions of the family infused with religious meaning?
  • Does religion contribute to environmental degradation? Does it have a role to play in preserving the environment?
  • What's with the struggle between science and religion?
  • Do we need God to do good? Religious and moral values in schools, charities and public policy.
