Religion and Belief by Joan Garrod

Book Description

Religion, belief and faith influence many areas of all our lives, whether we follow a particular doctrine or not. But are people becoming less religious in the modern age? Is religion a social construction? And what do key sociological theorists say about religion? This book examines the sociology of religion. Looking at belief systems around the world, the text questions and explores changing attitudes to religion, alongside issues such as secularization, fundamentalism and globalization. In particular, this text: * Explores contemporary and classic theory * Describes key practices and beliefs of particular faith groups * Investigates social characteristics associated with religious belief and participation * Discusses various approaches to the organisation of religion, from traditional institutions to sects and cults. Part of the successful Skills-Based Sociology series, Religion and Belief provides readers with the opportunity to build their knowledge whilst putting their understanding into practice. The book's clear structure, helpful exercises and exam guidance make this an invaluable resource for students new to the study of religion in society.
