Religion in the Twenty-First Century is a unique and informative survey of the global religious situation as we enter the new millennium. Through a thematic and people-oriented approach, this book provides a valuable introduction to a variety of new religious movements - whether founded as offshoots of traditional religions or as a result of millennial expectations or charismatic leaders. It also considers the role of the Interfaith Movement and the ways in which modern technology is spreading religions both new and old.
