Reviews - What do customers think about The Blackwell Companion to Sociology of Religion (Blackwell Companions to Religion)?
Great range and variety of subjects Apr 1, 2001
With wonderful editorial and personal commentary running throughout the book, this text would be of great use for students, teachers and the general public interested in the sociology of religion. Its authors both lead us through the history of sociology of religion and show us new paths which are being explored today. I found it exciting to read, particularly the articles by Bell, Fenn and the one on feminism by Woodhead.
