  • History, Time, Meaning, and Memoryby Barbara Jones Denison

    BRILL 2011; US$ 144.00

    It can be said that history is poor sociology that does not account sufficiently for present social circumstances, while sociology is bad history in that it does not go back in time. This volume in the Religion and Social Order series sets out to address these conjoint problems of history and sociology within the disciplinary boundaries of the sociology... more...

  • Understanding Faithby Stephen R.L. Clark

    Andrews UK 2011; US$ 20.99

    Militant atheists often mirror the worst kind of ignorance and hostility that they condemn in traditional believers. Writing both as a philosopher and an Anglican Christian, Professor Clark explores this initial perception, considering such topics as the alleged openness of ‘scientists’ compared with the ‘dogmatism’ of ‘believers’;... more...

  • Ritual Theory, Ritual Practiceby Catherine Bell

    Oxford University Press 1992; US$ 27.99

    Arguing that the concept of ritual is overdue for critical rethinking, Bell here offers a close theoretical analysis of recent developments in ritual studies, concentrating on anthropology, sociology, and history of religions. She begins by showing how discourse on ritual has served to generate and legitimate a limited and ultimately closed form of... more...

  • Civic Ideology, Organization, and Law in the Rule Scrollsby Yonder M. Gillihan

    BRILL 2011; US$ 242.00

    Using insights from modern sociology, this book argues that the organization, law, and literature of the Dead Sea Scrolls sect expressed an "alternative civic ideology" by which members claimed citizenship in a superior commonwealth that would soon replace the existing Judean state. more...

  • Encounters of Body and Soul in Contemporary Religious Practicesby Anna Fedele; Ruy Llera Blanes

    Berghahn Books 2011; US$ 34.95

    Social scientists and philosophers confronted with religious phenomena have always been challenged to find a proper way to describe the spiritual experiences of the social group they were studying. The influence of the Cartesian dualism of body and mind (or soul) led to a distinction between non-material, spiritual experiences (i.e., related to the... more...

  • Claiming Society for Godby Nancy J. Davis; Robert V. Robinson

    Indiana University Press 2012; US$ 20.99

    Claiming Society for God focuses on common strategies employed by religiously orthodox, fundamentalist movements around the world. Rather than employing terrorism, as much of post-9/11 thinking suggests, these movements use a patient, under-the-radar strategy of infiltrating and subtly transforming civil society. Nancy J. Davis and Robert V. Robinson... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 100.00

    Cattoi and McDaniel present a selection of articles on the role of the body and the spiritual senses - our transfigured channels of sensory perceptions - in the context of spiritual practice.
