  • Seeing Religionby Roman R. Williams

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 44.95

This is the task which Dr. Stark has set himself in the present essays. He has searched... more...

  • The Sociology of Religionby George Lundskow

    SAGE Publications 2008; US$ 79.00

    Most Sociology of Religion texts are decidedly staid and uninteresting, covering "contemporary" developments which are only contemporary only from a disciplinary perspective.   They are not contemporary if viewed from the perspective of the religion's practioners (in religious and non-religious settings).    The textbooks that attempt to be interesting... more...
