Using a historical and cultural approach, New Religious Movments takes the approach that new religious movements are neither new nor inherently evil or dangerous. The Introduction colorfully demonstrates the variety of NRMs today and how our first impressions of them may be wrong. Also, this text argues that NRMs are a normal response to cultural and social change, not just something that has "happened" to the Western World since the 1960s. This book's topics include Defining New Religious Movements, Modern Heresy, Esoteric Revival, Asian NRMs, African NRMs, Islamic NRMs, and the Global Future of NRMs. An interesting read for those interested in New Religious Movements.
