While such volumes abound, only occasionally does a volume likeThe Next American Spiritualityby George Gallup, Jr. and Timothy Jones arrive on my desk. More than a mere survey, this volume probes the depths of the American scene and forecasts with what I believe to be remarkable accuracy the spiritual landscape for the twenty-first century.
