Editorial Reviews


"A profound book on an issue that ought to set the reader thinking."--Dr. R Balashankar

"Steve Bruce's work is insightful and informative. It provides both socio-historical as well as sociological explanations as to how his theory is applicable. I appreciate his concerns regarding methodology... the work is colorful and in-depth, and likely to give rise to future conversation on the topic." --Nova Religio

"Secularization does manage to make a significant contribution to the current debate as Bruce mobilizes a wealth of empirical data to provide a robust response to naysayers...Bruce has succeeded in bringing much-needed clarity to an often-contentious debate"--Religion

"The indefatigable Steve Bruce's latest book continues his longstanding advancement of the case for the explanatory relevance of the classical definition of secularization...Those who follow Bruce's work are never at a loss as to what his position is. He is to be congratulated for being prepared to take his views to their logical conclusion even if these jar with conventional sentiment. As always his view will stimulate further discussion."--Catholic Books Review
