"This book makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of the new religions and to our efforts of keeping up with current developments. To those interested in, and concerned about, the movements' impact on individuals and society at large, this volume is useful both as a text as well as a reference book."
-John Saliba, University of Detroit
"New religions are usually seen through the narrow lens of a specific geographic location's ethnographic present. This book breaks new ground to present the complex global reality of modern spirituality. It is essential reading for any one seriously interested in this growing field."
-Irving Hexham, University of Calgary
"New Religious Movements is extremely informative, providing a comprehensive overview of a wide range of issues. Few collections of this sort have the degree of coherence that this has."
-Malcolm Hamilton, University of Reading
