Draws on new and recent research in the sociology of religion to synthesize a new set of orienting questions about religion in twenty-first century America Challenges outmoded sociological views that religion in the U.S. is contained in local communities and identifiable religious institutions by focusing on transnationalism, pluralism, secularism, and religious production Provides examples and concepts with which readers can raise and answer questions about religion in ways that previous studies of religion leave out
