"The 'Nones'-the religiously unaffiliated-popped into public consciousness a decade ago, and have attracted attention ever since. Yet they remain largely unknown and misunderstood, especially when viewed as indifferent to, if not hostile toward, religion. Drescher's research focuses not on who they aren't but on who they are-and she finds them a remarkably diverse and fluid segment of our society, some, of course, negative toward organized religion, but most trying to find meaning in life experience... A good and informative read." --Wade Clark Roof, J.F. Rowny Professor of Religion and Society Emeritus, University of California at Santa Barbara
"As the rate of religious disaffiliation nears 25% of the American population, the importance of understanding the 'Nones'-from roving seekers to settled nonbelievers-has risen correspondingly. Drescher offers a splendidly variegated account of the religious practices and engagements that continue to flourish among the unaffiliated. The spiritual voices of the 'Nones' emerge with unusual clarity and resonance in these pages." --Leigh E. Schmidt, author of Restless Souls: The Making of American Spirituality

My reason for four stars rather than five: I thought it was somewhat wordy, and significant sections weren't of interest to me. In all, though, a good read for anyone interested in the status of religion in the country today.
