In this book, Mark Juergensmeyer seeks to explain why the religious logic of Radhasoami, which is based on the teachings of medieval Hindu saints, is so compelling to hundreds of thousands of businessmen, intellectuals, office managers, and other urban professionals in North India. Juergensmeyer addresses the perplexing relationship between modernity and religious faith and examines it from historical, sociological, and phenomenological points of view.


"This book conveys the feeling of a well-seasoned and ripened academic offering.... Written so well, and covering so much, [this book] will be the definitive source to be mined for years by scholars of Radhasoami or a number of related interests."--Robert L. Brown, The Journal of Asian Studies

"This book provides the most consolidated, comprehensive and critical account of the Radhasoami movement to date."--Arvind Sharma, Sociology of Religion

"[A] badly needed . . . account of both the [Radhasoami] faith and its expansion. Juergensmeyer's account is more than merely competent. The book has been researched, planned and written with considerable skill and the result is one for which we can be very grateful."--Hew McLeod, Asian Studies Review
