  • Religion in Today?s Worldby Melissa M. Wilcox

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 69.95

    Religion is a major force in contemporary society. It is also one of the least understood social and political influences on individuals and communities. In this innovative collection of original essays and classic readings, experts explore the significance of contemporary religiosity: as a source of meaning and motivation, how it unites and divides... 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...

  • A Future for Religion?by Jr William H. Swatos

    SAGE Publications 1992; US$ 57.00

    In the 1960s many sociologists proclaimed traditional religion to be in its death throes. But, just as secularization gained nearly universal acceptance among scholars, religious resurgence burst forth from many directions - new religious movements and the growth of Islamic fundamentalism for example. In A Future for Religion? , contributors ask whether,... more...

  • Religiöse Sozialisation, Erziehung und Bildung in historischer Perspektiveby Antje Roggenkamp; Michael Wermke

    Evangelische Verlagsanstalt 2014; US$ 35.95

    Die Frage nach der geschichtlichen Dimension religiöser Sozialisation, Erziehung und Bildung hat sich vor allem in den letzten zehn Jahren als ein gewichtiger intra- und interdisziplinärer Forschungsstrang etabliert. Der vorliegende Band enthält die Beiträge der Jahrestagung 2013 des »Arbeitskreises für historische Religionspädagogik« zum Thema »Zwischenbilanzen:... more...

  • Finite Automataby A. de Vries

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95

    This dictionary supplies associations which have been evoked by certain words, signs, etc. in Western civilization in the past, and which may float to the surface again tomorrow; for however 'daringly new' a modern use of imagery may look, it generally appears to have roots in what has been said and done in the past. No fine distinctions have been... more...

  • Erfolg durch Willenskraftby Hans-Georg Willmann

    Gabal Verlag 2015; US$ 16.21

    Wenn Sie Ihr Leben verbessern wollen, ist Willenskraft Ihr neuer Freund. Zahlreiche Studien belegen: Im Vergleich zu anderen Faktoren hat Willenskraft mehr Einfluss auf den beruflichen und privaten Erfolg als Intelligenz. Willenskraft ist entscheidender für den Führungserfolg als Charisma. Menschen, die ihre Willenskraft klug nutzen, leben glücklicher... more...

  • Reliquienkult und Propagandaby Julia Ricker

    Verlag und Datenbank für Geisteswissenschaften - VDG Weimar 2013; Not Available

    Die Überführung von Heiligenkörpern vom ursprünglichen Bestattungsort zu einer neuen Grab- oder Verwahrungsstätte ist das narrative Zentrum von Translationsbildzyklen. In Analogie zum Aufbau der im Heiligenkult relevanten Legendentexte ist die Reliquienübertragung aber nur nur eine Handlung im Rahmen einer umfangreichen Bilderzählung. Beginnend mit... more...

  • Seeing Religionby Roman R. Williams

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 44.95

    The potential of visual research methods in the sociology of religion is vast, but largely untapped. This comes as a surprise, however, given the visual, symbolic, and material nature of religion and spirituality. Evidence of religious faith and practice is materially present in everything from clothing and jewelry to artifacts found in people?s homes... more...

  • Social Theory and Christian Thought (RLE Social Theory)by Werner Stark

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 47.95

    Almost all the great religious thinkers of the past have developed a social as well as theological doctrine, but their sociology was as a rule merely implicit in their work or at best half formulated so that careful study and analysis is needed to bring it out. This is the task which Dr. Stark has set himself in the present essays. He has searched... more...

  • Myth and the Christian Nationby Burton L. Mack

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 34.95

    America is widely regarded as the ultimate "Christian Nation." Religious language has always been at the forefront of American politics but this has increased since the events of 9/11. 'Myth and the Christian Nation' presents a startling analysis of how and why Christianity and national identity have been woven together in recent American political... more...
