Gorski, Kim, Torpey & VanAntwerpen (eds.), The Post-Secular in Question: Religion in Contemporary Society

This past March, New York University Press published The Post-Secular in Question: Religion in Contemporary Society edited by Philip Gorski (Yale University), David Kyuman Kim (Connecticut College), John Torpey (Cuny), and Jonathan VanAntwerpen (NYU). The publisher’s description follows.

The Post-Secular in Question considers whether there has in fact been a religious resurgence of global dimensions in recent decades. This collection of original essays by leading academics represents an interdisciplinary intervention in the continuing and ever-transforming discussion of the role of religion and secularism in today’s world. Foregrounding the most urgent and compelling questions raised by the place of religion in the social sciences, past and present, The Post-Secular in Question restores religion to a more central place in social scientific thinking about the world, helping to move scholarship “beyond unbelief.”
