9780195338522: The Oxford Handbook of Religious Conversion (Oxford Handbooks)

The Oxford Handbook of Religious Conversion offers a comprehensive exploration of the dynamics of religious conversion, which for centuries has profoundly shaped societies, cultures, and individuals throughout the world. Scholars from a wide array of religions and disciplines interpret both the varieties of conversion experiences and the processes that inform this personal and communal phenomenon.

This volume examines the experiences of individuals and communities who change religions, those who experience an intensification of their religion of origin, and those who encounter new religions through colonial intrusion, missionary work, and charismatic and revitalization movements. The thirty-two innovative essays provide overviews of the history of particular religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Sikhism, Islam, Christianity, Judaism, indigenous religions, and new religious movements. The essays also offer a wide range of disciplinary perspectives-psychological, sociological, anthropological, legal, political, feminist, and geographical-on methods and theories deployed in understanding conversion, and insight into various forms of deconversion.

Review :


"...all readers of Nova Religio should make certain that it is accessible at their local libraries."--Nova Religio


"An outstanding accomplishment, a must-read for anyone whose work relates to religious conversion, for academics, students, and practitioners alike."--Sociology of Religion


"Promises to be the standard work in its genre for years to come... This handbook is already and will continue to make important contributions to religious studies and across multidisciplinary boundaries." --Theological Librarianship


"This book is a huge accomplishment, in both the metaphorical and literal senses of the word, and I would recommend it to anyone studying religious conversion." --Pastoral Psychology


"Those interested in a well-written, accessible, and unreservedly interdisciplinary overview of religious conversion... will be satisfied and informed." --Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion


"The publication of this massive work on religious conversion is a singular event, not likely to be repeated soon... Reflecting a wealth of knowledge and erudition, the essays invite us-even compel us-to regard familiar situations with fresh eyes." --International Journal for the Psychology of Religion


"Rambo and Farhadian have given us all a true gift: This book is massive, comprehensive, current, creative, stimulating, and challenging. It will remain a foundation upon which the field can continue to build for decades to come." --iPastoral Psychology
