    This is a powerful book and one that seems accurate now than it did even in the decade since it was written the secularization of US on which Bruce devotes the a whole chapter of the book is much clear in 2014 when Protestantism is no longer the majority religion and even evangelicals have seen real declines in church attendance The arguments of Rodney Stark and late Peter L Berger are explicitly and obviously not mapping unto the US reality Decline in belief in post modernism has happened since then as well The excitement about alternative religious movements who benefited from exposure on the internet in the late 1990s and early 2000s seem to be declining as wellBruce clarifies a lot about secularization 1 It's not about an explicit increase in atheism rationality or science Science literacy is not tied to it Studies by people like Dan Kahan have made this clearer in general there is little relationship between belief in science and non specialist knowledge of science Bruce's paradigm actually a knowledged this 2 The normalization and liberalization of fundamentalist and evangelical sects are not signs of vitality but concessions to the secular morality The prosperity gospel is a concession to the secular world as much as any cogent theodicy and eschatology A lot of this book is a polemic defending the secularization paradigm and can be rooted in some knowledge of other sociologists such as Rodney Stark Andrew Greeley and Peter Berger This can feel very didactic; however once you get past the opening chapter laying out the paradigm the arguments are clear even if you are not hyper familiar with Bruce's opponentsAn excellent and uite useful book

    A well written and profoundly significant study of the process of secularization As secularist ideology becomes deeply ingrained in the modern western psyche its nature becomes increasingly difficult for us to recognize and examine Many of us tend to think of the process of secularization in positive terms as progress rarely considering the possibility that it might be clearly identified as a decline into spiritual apathy In this book Steve Bruce shows how this happens arguing that secularism is not a positive belief system or a set of values making it distinct from rationality and even from atheism Instead he argues it is best understood simply as indifferenceOne of the most interesting themes drawn out throughout this work is the relationship between conservative churches and liberal denominations The author shows very convincingly how liberal denominations cannot hold up across generations because of their diffuse and pluralistic nature Their appeal is limited to people who were thoroughly socialized in the values of a conservative tradition They embrace liberalism to escape the oppressive aspects of orthodoxy Conseuently the next generation of the liberal denomination raised with no strong sense of religious tradition embraces individualism and egalitarianism without tradition There is no sense of an impetus for the religious tradition to be passed down and carried on They thus embrace the wider culture of indifference toward religion This process of spiritual decadence is rigorously examined and defended with many examples throughout this workI want to recommend this book to people who have only a tangential interest in the sociology of religion The patterns described here are relevant to many aspects of modern life While reading this book I found myself drawing connections to politics art individual psychology and a variety of other subjects A stimulating and provocative read

    Bruce argues for the secularization thesis less and less people believe in God and those that do are and tepid in their belief Fundamentalism is a rearguard action sparked by the increasing indifference that religion encounters He has the figures that back up his story and makes it uite convincingly For my part I'd be happy to see the monotheisms fizzle out which in many ways they do seem to be doing slipping back into syncretic spiritualities that might hopefully reduce humanity to its rightful place among other forms of life


  4. Stephen Cranney Stephen Cranney says:

    A decent defense of a relatively unpopular idea; he did at times fail to mention evidence to the contrary such as the increase in belief in life after death in the US but on the whole a fair strong argument


  5. Josh Alfred Josh Alfred says:

    Bold empowering work big mind wrote it I'd say it went off topic and didn't say focused with the main topic of secularism and the decrease in the popularity of God but still a decent read
