Product Description

Review

'This Encyclopedia offers a truly fascinating, authoritative overview of new religious movements in a global context. What sets this work apart is its assessment of the global significance of a movement (how it progresses cross-culturally) with attention to its transformative appeal (how it seeks to transform its individual adherents or the larger society). This is an outstanding reference source – scholarly, timely, important, and worth the price for academic libraries. Summing Up: Essential.' CHOICE

'The Encyclopedia of New Religious Movements is an important handbook, both for those working in the field, and for those considering entering the field of New Religious Movements. It is indeed an illuminating guide for anyone who would like to have an overview on contemporary and past New Religious Movements (NRMs) worldwide. ... Plurality and objectivity are the basic achievements and the indisputable advantages of this encyclopedia' – Alternative Spirituality and Religion Review

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear! 17 Feb. 2013
By William B. Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
To author a genuine work that would truly live up to this impressive title would be such a massive exercise in human exploration that no individual or group of authors could untake it, nor publisher finance it. So what we have here is essentially a superficial review of a lot of seemingly interesting accounts, predicated on the assumption that it is better to sit in a chair and read about other people's experience than to live it oneself. More serious is the general tone throughout that there is a fundamental difference between the publishers and their ally the reader, and the misguided individuals suffering from the mass psychosis: the disease NRM.

A fairly non-committal study of this text reveals that it relies heavily on unattributed passages from dead writers who can't challenge for plagiarism. It is lacking in authority and real substance, and essentially an exercise in autoeroticism. The sad part is that earnest young men and women will take it at face value and think they really understand something.
