The Post-Secular in Question: Religion in Contemporary Society

eds. Philip S. Gorski, David Kyuman Kim, John Torpey and Jonathan VanAntwerpen

Are we living in a post-secular world? While many have assumed that we would simply grow more secular as society modernized, there is reason to believe that there has been a religious resurgence of global dimensions in recent decades. The Post-Secular in Question considers whether there has in fact been a significant and lasting increase in actual religious sentiment, adherence, and action in the world or whether its significance is in the eyes of the beholders—academics whose observations have been redirected toward patterns of religiosity that have been interpreted as indicators of a “post-secular society.”
