Editorial Reviews


Winner of the 2006 Distinguished Book Award, Section on Sociology of Religion, American Sociological Association

"Penny Edgell's new monograph provides a much-needed analysis of the intersections of religion and family life. . . . Edgell's work reaches beyond sociology of religion and sociology of family in an effort to speak to broader questions about culture, meaning, social engagement, and social change."--Sally K. Gallagher, Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion

"Religion and Family in a Changing Society should be the starting point for anyone interested in understanding contemporary family-religion dynamics."--Scott M. Myers, American Journal of Sociology

From the Inside Flap

"The research in this book is more extensive than almost anything else on this topic--and this is a topic that has received considerable attention in recent years. The particular attractiveness of the book is its combination of qualitative and quantitative evidence. I can think of no other book that brings the two together in this way."--Robert Wuthnow, Princeton University

"This book is a significant contribution to the contemporary discussion about the relation of family to religious institutions in the United States. It corrects several misunderstandings and clarifies a number of ambiguities about the religion-family link. It also displays a sophisticated social-science methodology and makes important theoretical contributions to both social theory and the sociology of religion."--Don Browning, University of Chicago

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
