Spiritual Marketplace:
Baby Boomers and the Remaking of American Religion
Wade Clark Roof

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"A significant contribution to understanding trends in the lived religion of many Americans in their question for meaning."--Jackson W. Carroll, Journal of the American Academy of Religion

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This will be the book to consult for both a synthesis of what has been observed in the areas of American religion and spirituality and for some fresh observations about where American searchers are moving. Wade Clark Roof writes so clearly, is so jargon-free, and is so ready to share his insights with the public that I would think everyone from college-textbook users through mass ommunicators to humanistic and social scientific observers of the American scene would find it intelligible and useful."----Martin E. Marty, Professor Emeritus and Director of the Public Religion Project, University of Chicago

"This is an engaging book that will easily be read by undergraduates and folks in the pews as well as by academics. One of its key arguments is that American religion can best be characterized by searching, rather than by stable identities or by preferences or affiliations with particular denominations or traditions. Spiritual Marketplace explores the social sources of this searching and how it affects Americans' understandings of personal identity, their commitments to religious institutions, and their moral orientations. The book succeeds admirably in accomplishing its ambitious aims."--Robert Wuthnow, Princeton University
