"This volume marks the conclusion of a massive four-year academic research project devoted to the analysis of the realities represented by the terms 'secular,' 'secularism,' and 'secularization.'...This conversation, I believe, remains one of the main tasks confronting those who write on secularism today."--Anglican Theological Review
"Rethinking Secularism is not only a fascinating book for students and scholars, but also for everyone who wants to broaden one's horizons...volumes such as Rethinking Secularism may move us closer to a better understanding of our globalized world."--Religion
