Description: Bednarowski is especially good at elucidating the theological daring of these new American religions. . . . [She] demonstrates in a very few pages how . . . theology and group adherence made the individual count, a configuration simultaneously American, un-American, and important. Jon Butler"The cultural confrontation with these `new religions' is very real and usually very misinformed. Bednarowski has gone to great lengths to dispel the ignorance." The Christian Century"A groundbreaking study." Syzygy: Journal of Alternative Religion and CultureOrganized as a series of theological conversations about ultimate questions, this book offers a guide to the answers these six religions offer. Drawing heavily on sources from the movements themselves, it presents a balanced comparative account of the emerging theological systems of America's new religions.
