This volume of the Religion Today series of texts offers a wide-ranging exploration of the adaptation and diversity of religious traditions in various geographical, cultural and ethnic contexts within the contemporary world. The book analyses the complexities of the relationships between religion and globalization, and general trends and counter-trends in secularization. It argues that religions that go global cannot remain unchanged by their importation into new cultures, and explores the creative tension between indigenization and a sense of global identity.;The chapters focus on Evangelical and Pentecostal Christianity in the UK, the USA, Latin America and Africa, as well as the world-wide spread of Islam and of the Japanese-derived Buddhist movement, the Soka Gakkai.
