Mark Juergensmeyer blurbs Religion Beyond a Concept:

<br />“This flagship volume of a projected five-volume series sets the intellectual agenda for one of the most comprehensive projects ever undertaken to chart the course of religion’s past and future. The interesting, intriguing, and vexing set of essays in this impressive volume explores all of the major issues surrounding the contemporary reemergence of religion as a vital force in public affairs. Hent de Vries has led an intellectually dazzling charge over the terrain of global culture and shown that the challenge of religion in the contemporary world is deeply tied to the crisis of modernity and identity in a post-secular age.”
