Religion and Canadian Society: Traditions, Transitions, and Innovations offers an outstanding selection of readings that represents an overview of the key issues in the sociology of religion from a uniquely Canadian perspective.
Masterfully planned and united by themes that are clearly articulated in the part openers, this reader moves through three thematic cornerstones: traditions, transitions and innovations. Recurring sub-themes include the definition of religion, the secularization debate, the challenge of diversity, and the gendered aspects of religious experience.
This ground-breaking reader is the first of its kind in Canada. This is the first book to examine religion and Canadian society in a meaningful, critical, feminist framework appropriate for the 21st century.
