Religion and Canadian Society, Second Edition
Contexts, Identities, and Strategies
Masterfully planned and united by clearly articulated themes, the second edition moves through three thematic cornerstones: contexts, identities, and strategies. Recurring sub-themes include the definition of religion, the secularization debate, the challenge of diversity, and the gendered aspects of religious experience. Key additions to this edition include a discussion on cultural diversity, an exploration of religion and sexuality, and a thorough historical overview of religion in Canada.
“Lori Beaman has assembled a balanced collection of some of the best essays available on essential aspects of the contemporary religious life of Canadians. Canadian scholars will find it a convenient and excellent resource for courses dealing with the sociology of religion and religion and society in general.”
