Editorial Reviews

Review

"A richly detailed and well-argued treatment of new religions and science." -Sociology of Religion

"A valuable book that makes an important contribution to the study of new religions."-E. Burke Rochford Jr.,Sociology of Religion

Prophets and Protons is a scholarly study of how three new religious movements interact with science, both how they view science in the light of their religious beliefs, and how they integrate science into their beliefs. Benjamin Zeller establishes early on that religion and science are not in conflict; they are in creative tension, which is a very different matter.”-Fortean Times

“Zeller (Brevard College) provides an analysis of three new religious movements of the mid- to late-20th century that arose as part of the counterculture response to the growth of American Science... In the book’s excellent bibliography, both primary and secondary sources are delineated.”-CHOICE

Prophets and Protons is a valuable statement on the perennial religion-versus-science discussion, one that should be read by anyone who dares to venture into the fray.”-Anthropology Review Database

“The varied relationships between new religions and science are one of the least explored, yet most fascinating aspects of new religious emergence and development. In this captivating book, Zeller deftly expands the agenda for the study of new religions. No longer will scholars be able to ignore the intersection of worldviews he describes here.”
-Douglas E. Cowan,author of Cults and New Religions: A Brief History and Cyberhenge: Modern Pagans on the Internet



"Clearly and carefully written, Zeller's work offers a fascinating, thoughtful reflection on the complexity of the relationship between science and religion in the modern world."
-R. Scott Sheffield,The Magazine of the Chemical Heritage Foundation
